In NorthCarolina, the top 25% of teachers are eligible to give up due process rights in return for an extra $500 a year. However, there is a catch, this reader says:

“It is $500 a year for 4 years and then back to where you were in 2013-14. You don’t stay at the plus $2,000 in year 5. Also since only the first year is funded local funds will have to be found for years 2, 3 and 4. It’s just the cheese in the trap.”
