At these sessions, Chairman DeBar will solicit teachers’ ideas about how their compensation can be improved. We are grateful to Chairman DeBar for seeking out educators’ input as he and his team work to make Mississippi’s teacher pay competitive in the Southeast.
The chairman began his tour in his own Senate district last week, and he held the first of four congressional district meetings in Pascagoula on Monday. Both meetings were well attended, and teachers shared their opinions freely and expressed gratitude for Chairman DeBar’s show of support.
Please help us spread the word about these important events. Together, we’ve got this!
