Paying teachers more to work in troubled schools, may be going away

Hello again everyone, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 5:00PM—the policy of paying teachers more to work in troubled schools, may be going away under the new CMS regime.  Our education reporter Dedrick Russell is breaking this story after he interviewed the incoming superintendent Heath Morrison.  

The president makes a highly controversial decision without congressional approval about immigration.  Republicans call it election year pandering to garner votes. We'll look at the issue. 

Do you know much about fracking?  It's the process of pumping liquid underground to release methane gas.  That's a simplified explanation, but the state legislature just passed a bill to allow fracking in North Carolina.  This concerns environmentalists who worry about contamination in the ground water.  Other scientists say it appears a safe path toward alternative energy.  Business reporter Melissa Hankins is looking into the debate. 

A member of the "Flying Wallenda" family attempts to cross Niagara Falls on a high wire tonight.  It seems like a death-defying moment, but the TV network who's airing the event has demanded Nik Wallenda wear a safety harness.
