Several Pitt County education officials said the $20.6 billion state budget proposed by Gov. Pat McCrory is a mixed bag.

The proposal, which includes increases for the N.C. Pre-K program, money for new teachers and more digital learning resources in K-12 classrooms, increases funding for technical education in community colleges, and promotes enrollment in high-demand fields at four-year university, was released on Wednesday.


The budget now goes to the House and Senate, where they will make changes and reconcile any differences. Their budget will then be sent back to McCrory who either will ratify or veto it.
