OKLAHOMA CITY – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks regarding a teacher pay raise measure. House Bill 1036 passed out of the Joint Committee on Appropriations and Budget earlier today.

“Regionally competitive teacher compensation is desperately needed if we are ever to turn around this devastating teacher shortage,” Hofmeister said. “I am grateful for leaders at the Capitol who share this critical goal and seek to address this important investment for increasing student outcomes. The proposed teacher pay raise is a positive step in the right direction for Oklahoma education.”
