Education group urges NC teachers to reject contracts

A state education group is asking teachers to reject contracts that districts are offering them to replace tenure. Teacher tenure is being phased out under a new law, to be replaced with contracts of one- to four years. To start, school districts must offer 25 percent of their best teachers four-year contracts. Those teachers who sign give up their tenure, but receive pay increases of $500 a year for a total of $5,000 over four years.
