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.

Your support makes all the difference.

As we look toward the 2022 Legislative Session, there is reason to be hopeful. And there is reason to be vigilant! The Senate is pushing for a significant teacher pay raise, but the House tax shift plan threatens to derail it.

With your help, we can win the day for Mississippi teachers and children. That takes resources. Your gift of $10, $25, $100, or more can ensure that we have a well-informed, well-organized network of Mississippi public school parents and teachers and that their voices reach decision-makers at the Capitol. #GivingTuesday
