 Governor Asa Hutchinson hosted a roundtable discussion with local leaders from government, education, and law enforcement in the Texarkana community on Friday, July 13, 2018, to discuss school safety and teacher recruitment and retention in Miller County.

Representatives from all Miller County school districts were present to touch base with Hutchinson regarding what measures their schools are taking to improve student morale and trust among school officials and resource officers.

Becky Kesler, Texarkana, Arkansas, School District Superintendent, said their district has continued to offer their instructors tuition reimbursement programs to ensure educators are remaining in the local school system for the long-run.

Hutchinson also announced his initiative to increase all teacher minimum wages over the next four years, a sign of his commitment to compete regionally for education.
