North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announced Monday that his budget will call for 5 percent teacher raises on average this year and next – with a goal of raising pay to the national average in five years. Cooper’s plan would cost $813 million over two years without raising taxes, he said. During that time teachers would get average raises of 10 percent.
