Mississippi governor signs $1,500 pay raise for teachers

JACKSON, Miss. — Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed a bill Tuesday to give teachers and assistant teachers a $1,500 pay raise during the year that begins July 1.

Bryant’s Twitter account posted a photo of him signing Senate Bill 2770 nearly three weeks after legislators agreed on the plan.

“Good teachers can change the trajectory of a student’s life forever,” the governor’s account tweeted.

The Mississippi Department of Education says that before the raises, teachers in the state received an average of $44,659, which is less than the Southeastern average of about $51,000.
