BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Superintendent of Brunswick County Schools says a new state law that addresses teacher tenure is causing problems for teachers and school systems across the state.
"I'm not sure what type of a problem the General Assembly was trying to solve in passing this law but it has created a terrible problem for school systems," said Dr. Edward Pruden.
He says the new law does away with tenure in 2018. It also forces the superintendent to recommend 25 percent of the teachers who have worked in the school system for more than three years to be put on a four year contract and receive a $5,000 bonus over the course of the four years.
