Arkansas teachers are often unheard, undervalued, and underpaid. This campaign has a central goal on education: In 10 years, Arkansas should be the best state in the country to be a public school teacher.
There has been a 56% drop in the number of people entering the teaching profession since 2009. For our state to have the best and the brightest future, we have to attract the best and the brightest to the teaching profession, and celebrate and retain our talented educators who are already in it.
We need to make sure we have a great human being in every classroom who has the training and resources they deserve, and then we need to get out of their way. If we do that, we have a fighting shot at building an excellent Arkansas education system that works for every kid. If we don’t achieve that, it’s going to be hard to get there.

Alternative Headline: More than 7,000 fail to meet Arkansas internet requirement Nothing is “encouraging” about these numbers. Major policy implementation requires legitimate outreach. Our governor is failing hardworking Arkansans & our rural hospitals. https://t.co/XP7fit1IKa
It’s the 16th, so yet another government payday passes for Rep. Mickey Gates. Leaders across party lines have called for Gates’ resignation after he failed to file 15 years of state income taxes, but our governor remains silent. Arkansas – you deserve better leadership.
RT @IndivisibleLRCA: Need to take positive action to feel better after today's news: how about a new Governor for #Arkansas this November?…
