NORTH CAROLINA: Toolkits for Improved Working Conditions

In cooperation with the North Carolina Business Committee for Education and The Southeast Center for Teaching Quality, BellSouth developed a community toolkit containing practical, proven best practices for improving teachers' working conditions. The electronic toolkit ( helps communities respond to the findings of Governor Easley’s statewide teacher working conditions survey, which identifies specific issues and concerns of teachers in districts and schools across the state. The toolkit is being implemented at community meetings throughout North Carolina, where volunteers from BellSouth and elsewhere present a facilitation model to help participants develop a plan to use community and state resources to address teachers’ concerns. The program will ultimately help develop new strategies for recruiting and retaining teachers in North Carolina, as well as providing a model that can be replicated in other states.
