North Carolina Teachers Plan Day of Action Over Pay, Education Funding

Lawmakers in North Carolina will be back at the capitol in Raleigh on Wednesday, and when they reconvene, they’ll be talking about an issue familiar to Arizonans: teacher pay and education funding.

Gov. Roy Cooper has proposed increasing school funding, in part, by adjusting the taxes paid by high-income residents, similar to the "Invest in Ed" initiative backers here in Arizona are trying to refer to the ballot.

Billy Ball, education reporter for North Carolina Policy Watch, joined The Show to talk about what's happening in North Carolina.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
