The elected supervisor of North Carolina's public school system said teachers should be given an exemption from personal income taxes.
"Let's keep our competent teachers in North Carolina classrooms," she said in The Daily Caller. "Let's position North Carolina to be a more attractive state for new teachers. Exempt them from paying personal state income taxes."
June Atkinson, the state superintendent of public instruction, said she suggested the exemption in lieu of pay increases for teachers, which didn't make the budget presented in legislative chambers, The Daily Caller reported.
