More Money Could Flow Into Public Schools
Missouri Senate committee is considering Moberly State Representative Ed Lewis’s bill, which would recreate a teacher recruitment and retention scholarship fund.
The public education package would also boost the minimum teacher salary to 38-thousand-dollars annually. For teachers with a master’s degree and 10 years of experience, the minimum pay would be 46-thousand-dollars. Another piece of the bill would change the funding calculation for state aid to schools from the current five-percent maximum annual increase to nine-percent over the next nine years.
