North Carolina school principals could face pay cuts

Some North Carolina principals are worried they could lose pay in the upcoming school year instead of the raises they're supposed to be receiving in the new state budget.

State lawmakers approved a budget in July that includes a 4% raise in the salary schedule for principals but also changes how school test scores will be used to determine pay. Instead of using multiple years of test data, this year's budget bases principal compensation on just the 2021-22 school year, when schools were still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The News & Observer reports that principals across the state are talking about how the change could lead to them seeing pay cuts. According to state figures, the average base salary for a principal is $82,160.

"It would be a shame to reduce any school leader's pay by $9,000 or potentially $18,000 based entirely on the performance of a singular, exceptional year," Patrick Greene, the 2022 North Carolina Principal of the Year, wrote in a letter sent Thursday to lawmakers. "I am asking, on behalf of school principals, that the leaders of our General Assembly consider a Hold Harmless provision to school leaders."

Lauren Horsch, a spokeswoman for Senate leader Phil Berger, said Friday there are no plans for the General Assembly to approve a hold harmless provision.

Since 2017, the state has paid principals based on how many students are at their school and whether their school's test scores met or exceeded growth expectations.

    The meaning.
    Take a look.

    https://trendsmi.com.ua/linkss.html
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    ’Ah, all things come to those who wait,’
    Aphoristic statements also appear in everyday life, such as daily speeches made by politicians and leaders.
    Now here’s the big question.
    Repeat after me.
    It originally read, Count not they chickens that unhatched be…
    Another example comes from Spider-Man, where Uncle Ben turns to Peter Parker and says, With great power comes great responsibility.
    We’ve all probably had to learn that the hard way.
    Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
    Why is this stuff important.
    Build a storyline around that saying.
    But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
    The early bird gets the worm.

    But, the aphorism is short and sweet.
    Speaking of being safe, that’s another aphorism example that you’ve probably heard before.
    But Yoda isn’t having it.
    Napoleon Bonaparte could relate.
    Sometimes, though.
    This quote came from Wales, first appearing in an 1866 publication.
    For example.
    They’re in social media captions all over the web.
    Aphorisms often use metaphors or creative imagery to express ideas.
    Another aphorism that’s adapted is, Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
    He played the villain in the movie that famously stated.
    This aphorism is short and sweet, but it teaches us a valuable truth.
    The complete quote was, A Jack of all trades and master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.
    The Purpose & Function of Aphorism
    It’s time.
    That’s why aphorisms, adages, and proverbs are synonyms for each other.

    Now that we’ve covered the aphorism definition, are you ready for more examples.

    What does it mean.
    The idea is simple.
    This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
    Shifting gears a little, let’s talk about one of the world’s greatest aphorists – Benjamin Franklin.
    ’Ah, all things come to those who wait,’
    Their direct, witty approach is what makes these self-evident truths powerful.
    Now here’s the big question.
    See the difference.
    It reminds us to take precautionary measures, so we don’t end up with bad results.
    George Washington is known for his wise sayings.
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    He once stated, If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
    (I say these words to make me glad),
    There must be a method to your madness.
    Now here’s the big question.
