Pay Arkansas Teachers!

Demand the Arkansas Legislature fight for our school employees by raising pay: 

• Sign the petition asking Gov. Asa Hutchinson and the AR GOP to add school staff pay raises to the 8/8 special session call.

• Email these legislators with a personal email. Keep emails short, personal, and respectful. 

Sample email (please personalize): 

My name is _______ , and I believe Arkansas teachers and classified school staff deserve better pay. Please fight for our educators. Pass legislation that gives these much-deserving state employees a raise.
