WUNCPolitics Podcast: April 29, 2016

On this episode of the WUNCPolitics Podcast we focus on a single, perhaps defining, topic in the race for the next Governor: Pat McCrory's record on teacher pay. It’s an issue upon which he may very well be pinning his re-election hopes.

Managing Editor for News Dave DeWitt is joined by Fletcher Fellow for Education Policy Reporting Jess Clark. Before listening to the podcast, it may be helpful to read a recent WUNC fact-check on McCrory's teacher-pay claims, like the one made by his current Education Advisor, Cathy Truitt: "North Carolina teacher pay has increased faster than any other state in the country."

Is that true? Listen to the podcast and decide for yourself.WUNCPolitics Podcast, episode 15
