Bill Waller on Education



Pay raise for good teachers & to attract new ones

Increasing Teacher Pay to Support, Attract and Retain High Quality Teachers: Teachers are working hard, and we need to support them even more with a pay raise that keeps good teachers here and attracts new teachers. Students, parents and teachers deserve more focus than they're getting now. Currently, Mississippi has the lowest teacher salary in America, and clearly, our teachers need a pay raise so we can get their salary up to the Southeastern average as quickly as possible.

Community colleges teach job skills at high schools

When asked about his vision for expanding Mississippi's economy, Waller said the workforce must be better prepared in the future. "I support bringing more community colleges into high schools to help teach job skills so students who don't go to college can still have real opportunities to get a good-paying job to support their family and live the American dream," said Waller.

In discussing education, both Waller and Foster said they would commit to a yearly teacher pay raise to reach the southeastern average. "Teachers deserve our full support," Waller said. "Instead of just an election year teacher pay raise, we need to think bigger with a goal of increasing teacher salaries every year to get to the Southeastern average--which means we can keep, and attract good teachers, and that results in better student outcomes."
