Yesterday, the Mississippi Legislature convened the 2022 Legislative Session, one of the most important for public education in recent history.
The leadership in both chambers has said that a teacher pay raise will be forthcoming. The size of that pay raise is critical. Do lawmakers have the political will to do whatever it takes to pass a teacher pay raise that will really improve teachers’ standard of living?
We can help. Legislators want to be good representatives of their constituents. So, the more they hear from you in support of a substantial teacher pay raise, the better that pay raise is likely to be.
We at The Parents’ Campaign will be working hard for a big teacher pay raise – and to achieve our other legislative priorities. We will need your help. We’ll make it quick and easy for you to make a real difference…
