RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper has reconstituted a committee of current and former teachers and support staff to advise him on public education issues.

Cooper announced Thursday his signing of an executive order this week creating the Governor’s Teacher Advisory Committee and identified 24 members. Previous governors - including predecessors Pat McCrory and Beverly Perdue - had similar panels.

Members on Cooper’s panel include North Carolina Association of Educators President Mark Jewell and former state House budget-writer David Diamont, who is now a high school football coach.

The governor also released a back-to-school video thanking teachers for their work.
