Edgecombe County should give teachers an incentive to teach here

My comment pertains to Edgecombe County Public Schools.

I believe that Edgecombe County School board members, as well as, Edgecombe County commissioners need to do a better job of acknowledging their teachers and giving their teachers an incentive to stay within that school system.

Currently, if any one of those teachers wanted, they could drive 10 miles in either direction and their teacher supplement would be doubled.

I just think it is a shame because Edgecombe County commissioners can do a better job in being creative using the funds they have to increase teachers’ supplements.

It just seems like they find ways to use money in other areas other than acknowledging their teachers and their excellence.
