Tate Reeves on Education

 

 


Job training lifts people out of poverty, into proud work

I also believe we need to sharpen one particular tool to get our economy rolling--our state's workforce development. We don't need Mississippians to be stuck in low-paying jobs. We want them to embark on careers with good pay and freedom. The best way to accomplish that is to give them access to training that puts them in a position to succeed. It is essential. It is how we will succeed. It is how we will lift people out of poverty and into proud work.

Ensure parental choice to save children from bad districts

We need to keep fighting for every child to have access to the education that they deserve. We need to ensure that parents have the choice to save their child from a district that lets them down. And we need to reward our teachers for the exceptional, life-changing work that they do.

Have invested more than $10 billion in education programs

My vision is creating a seamless system of education from cradle to career. I have invested more than $10 billion in K-12 schools and early childhood education, including investments that prioritize career and technical education, and building an antiracist curriculum that is honest about the past. We will continue to make progress toward stomping out the opportunity gap by ensuring 8,000 more kids are eligible for home visiting, early head start, and preschool promise.

Let's pay our teachers as much as we can possibly afford

As we begin to allocate this new revenue, I can think of no one more deserving, and no task more essential, than increasing the pay of our teachers. I know that there is broad consensus and commitment to achieve this quickly and to increase pay substantially. I want all of you to know that my priority is simple: let's pay our teachers as much as we can possibly afford. Send me a budget that does that, and I'll stand beside each of you to sign it with joy.

We will not win this great competition without a financial investment in the people who can make it happen. Last year, I outlined a plan to put $100 million into workforce development--training Mississippians so that we are ready to work. Teaching skills to students from the earliest possible age. Apprenticeships, community college grants, and assistance for workers. We can make noise across the nation when they see our commitment to this cause.

$2 million for a private school vouchers

Reeves slipped $2 million for a private school voucher program in the eleventh hour of the 2019 legislative session, during his gubernatorial election year, after giving public educators a nominal pay raise that prompted members of the largest association of public school teachers in the state to mull a strike.
