WROX Radio, Clarksdale, Mississippi.From WROX:

Mississippi lawmakers are considering giving teachers a pair of $2,000 raises over the next two years…four times more than the original proposal.  The amendment to Senate Bill 2770 would cost $206 million over two years.  The move comes days after a revenue report showed Mississippi is on track to end the current budget year on June 30 with a surplus of more than $193 million, and after teacher groups called for bigger raises.  The National Education Association says in 2016-17 Mississippi had the lowest average teachers’ salary among states, just under $43,000 per year.  House leaders are also considering $12 million to $15 million in raises for state employees who haven’t had raises in the past two years.
