North Carolina’s public schools superintendent is seeking pay raises for all teachers, plus bonuses for experienced teachers who coach fellow educators or teach in low-performing classrooms.

State schools superintendent June Atkinson on Wednesday offered her proposals on what will likely be a bi-partisan, election-year push to raise teacher salaries that now lag near the bottom in the country.

The elected Democrat told a committee of the Republican-run General Assembly they would define how many teachers would be eligible for those bonuses. Atkinson says they’re already offered by some school districts that can afford them, while classrooms in other parts of the state are left out.

Legislators have raised teacher pay in each of the past two years, focusing on early-career educators.
