As North Carolina House and Senate disagree over licensing issue, teacher jobs are in limbo

RALEIGH -- Teachers across North Carolina face losing their jobs in less than three weeks as state lawmakers try to work out a deal over whether to give educators more time to pass their licensure exams.

The state Senate voted Thursday not to back a bill passed by the House on Wednesday that would give teachers additional time to meet licensure requirements. Now a committee made up members of both bodies will try to work out a compromise before the June 30 deadline passes for some teachers who need a legislative extension to avoid losing their jobs.

Sen. Tom McInnis, a Republican from Richmond County and one of the bill’s primary sponsors, told his colleagues Thursday that the House had made too many changes to the version the Senate had passed in May.

1. Wow...a little strict...teachers need to answer ?s about calculus and ...

other non teachable items on this test...I can understand competency tests to a certain point, but to ask such specific questions that the vast majority of teachers won't be dealing with (calculus, etc.).

And getting a lifetime license one would have to have 30 years of experience...thirty years!!!! If I were a teacher, I would think I would go else where for my teaching job...nothing like politics to drive the requirements for job skills.
