Lawmakers Asked To CARE

JACKSON, Miss.  Teachers are asking for more of your tax dollars, wanting lawmakers to give them at least a 5% pay raise next year.

“It’s vital that we increase teacher salaries in order to keep the best and the brightest in all of our schools in Mississippi,” said Mississippi Association of Educators Associate State Director Beverly Brahan.  “We are among the lowest paid in the nation. So we lose our young teachers to other professions where they can make a substantial living.”

MAE is asking lawmakers to support the C.A.R.E (Confirm A Raise for Education) ACT. If they do, it would give teachers a raise the first year and put in place a comprehensive plan to allow Mississippi salaries, over time, to rise to the southeastern average, or at least to a competitive rate.
