Statement on 2022 State of the State Address

“PAGE applauds Gov. Kemp’s pledge today to deliver the remaining $2,000 pay increase to K-12 educators as a permanent raise next fiscal year, provide one-time pay supplements to many educators and school staff this fiscal year, and fully fund QBE. His announcement rightly prioritizes Georgia’s 1.7 million public school students and the teachers and school personnel who serve them. These investments, for which PAGE has strongly and consistently advocated, are important steps toward reducing teacher attrition and ensuring that Georgia’s educators remain in classrooms doing what they do best – preparing our children for the future.”

– Executive Director Craig Harper
