OKLAHOMA CITY (Feb. 1, 2016) — This afternoon, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks about Gov. Mary Fallin’s proposed teacher pay raise outlined in today’s State of the State address:

"We applaud Governor Fallin for recognizing the need to pay Oklahoma teachers competitively as soon as possible. The proposed $3,000 salary increase outlined in her State of the State address is an important step in aligning our educators’ pay with the regional average and could help alleviate the teacher shortages we are facing in all areas of pre K-12 education.
