Governor Roy Cooper’s Teacher Advisory Committee met yesterday and covered a variety of topics. Members heard updates on a teacher licensure and pay reform plan, as well as state efforts to change the North Carolina school accountability model. After the lunch break, committee members had a wide-ranging discussion about the licensure reform plan, including potentially soliciting feedback from educators and putting out a statement.
