Henderson To Address Teacher Pay, Teen Pregnancy As Governor

Lowering the state’s teen pregnancy rates and raising the pay for teachers would be among Democrat Jared Henderson’s goals if elected governor he said Friday at the NEA Political Animals meeting in Jonesboro.

Teachers are under siege and more needs to be done to pay them better and more needs to be done to attract the best candidates to become teachers, he said. Better teachers will lead to better students and will help bolster the economy, he added.

“If you don’t get this right, nothing else matters,” he said.

Henderson hopes to unseat Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson this fall. Libertarian Mark West is also a candidate for governor.  MORE
