RALEIGH, N.C. (AP/WBTV) - Leaders in the North Carolina House and Senate announced they have reached agreement on a $20.6 billion budget that will end teacher tenure and allow taxpayer money to be spent for private school tuition.
A news release issued Sunday evening offered highlights of the budget negotiated by the Republican majority. The actual appropriations bill was not expected to be made available to the public until later in the night.
The budget increases overall state spending by 2.5 percent while instituting tax cuts for corporations and individuals. The plan scraps the longstanding teacher tenure system in favor of employing educators on contracts that are renewed based on performance reviews. The budget would also allow families that meet income guidelines to get state money to pay private school tuition starting in 2014.
The budget plan also restores 69 state trooper positions.It also adds 22 magistrates and 175 probation and parole officers.
The plan also provides one-time compensation to living victims of a state-sponsored Eugenics program that ended in the 1970s and stops the blatant misuse of tax dollars at the N.C. Rural Center.
