Here’s another bright legislative idea, featured in a good video from the Arkansas Citizens First Congress: The bill, SB 618, by Sen. James Sturch (R-Batesville) provides a tax credit for early childhood educators who obtain higher credentials.

With better training, teachers will be more effective and they’ll be better paid.

Other legislators would rather take tax money and give it to private schools with no accountability. I think Sturch is on the right path, to improve public education for all.
