Mississippi House tries to revive pay raise for assistant teachers

JACKSON, Mississippi — The Mississippi House is trying to revive a plan to give a pay raise to assistant teachers.

The current base salary of the state’s roughly 6,000 assistants is $12,500 a year, although some local districts provide supplements.

The House voted in February to give assistant teachers a $2,500 bump, at a cost of $15 million, raising base salaries to $15,000. Senators recently killed that plan.
