Chinese Delegates Examine N.C. Tobacco
The Associated Press
OXFORD - In a field still drying
from morning rain, four Chinese tobac
co inspectors got their first close look
Monday at a crop industry that state
leaders hope will someday go up in
smoke on the other side of the globe.
The inspectors, feet wrapped in clear
plastic booties to protect their shoes
from the mud, listened as Bill Clements,
superintendent of a nearby federal-state
agricultural research station, explained

The visit came at the start of a three
week tour of tobacco farms, warehouses
and other such sites in North Carolina,
Virginia and Kentucky. Farmers, sellers
and manufacturers hope the inspections
will result in sales to China, which has
restricted American leaf due to concerns
over blue mold.
“We want to drive home the point
that blue mold will not be introduced to
China through our cured leaf,” said Jim

“China represents a strong potential
economic partner for our tobacco indus
try and can play a significant role in
tobacco purchases totaling many mil
lions of dollars each year.”
State agriculture officials said it will
take five to 10 years to build a significant
market with China and purchases this
year would be trials.

N.C. Teacher Shortage
Could Worsen in Future
North Carolina's population
boom, coupled with a push
for smaller classes, has put
teachers in high demand.
By Alex Kaplun
Assistant State & National Editor
A growing number of students will
enroll in N.C. schools this month,
adding to the effects of a statewide
teacher shortage that education officials
fear will worsen in the coming decade.
Increasing student populations, retir
ing teachers and a push for smaller class
sizes have exacerbated the state’s insuf
ficient number of teachers.
With several hundred teaching posi
tions already unfilled, N.C. education
officials estimate the state will have to
hire at least 80,000 new teachers in the
“There is a need for more teachers in
all parts and subject areas in the state,”
said Gordon Millspaugh, resource man
agement director for the N.C.
Department of Public Instruction.
Millspaugh also said the nation’s
booming economy is pushing many
teachers and college graduates with edu
cation degrees to choose professions
with higher pay.
But he also said he hoped the 7.5 per
cent pay increase for public school
teachers the N.C. General Assembly
passed this summer would help attract
more teachers to North Carolina’s
The state was once ranked 43rd in
the nation in teachers’ salaries.
Under a program developed by Gov.
Jim Hunt to boost teacher Sedaries,

national average of $40,462.
Millspaugh said the state’s teacher
shortage also resulted partiy from a lack
of teachers graduating from UNC-sys
The UNC-system graduates about
3,000 people with education degrees
But Millspaugh said many do not
become teachers after graduation or
leave the state to teach elsewhere.
Of the 9,000 new teachers the state
employed last year, only 3,000 were
recruited from North Carolina.
But Charles Coble, UNC-system vice
president for programs, said a lack of
competitive salaries and inadequate
resources were partly to blame for the
low numbers of graduates with teaching
“There is a direct correlation between
high teacher salaries, good conditions
and student achievement,” Coble said.
But Millspaugh said the Department
of Public Instruction has started pro
grams to attract more people into the
Initiatives include scholarships, sup
port programs for new teachers and
N.C. Teach, a program in conjunction
with UNC-system schools.
N.C. Teach is targeted at profession
als who are in another career but want
to become teachers, said Dorothy
Mabane, the program’s design director.
She said the program attracted 130
people last year, but said she hopes that
number will rise to 300 by next year.
“I think N.C. Teach is a very strong
component of the statewide effort in
North Carolina to create more teaching
