Re: “Henderson proposes investment in teachers; Asa campaign scoffs

Asa Hutchinson's commitment to raising teacher pay at the state level is an empty promise. Within a few months after Hutchinson took office in 2015, Arkansas Act 1240 (formerly HB1377) opened the door for traditional public school districts to receive the same waivers from state law that are granted to public charter schools in the state of Arkansas. These waivers include several laws that affect teacher employmentleaving obsolete laws on the books, but exempting school districts from having to follow them. Changing the Arkansas Code to make it appear that teachers are paid a minimum salary of $36,000 will not actually raise teacher pay in any of the districts that take advantage of the rapidly increasing number of waivers distributed by the Arkansas Department of Education under the supervision of Asa Hutchinson and Johnny Key.
