During yesterday’s state of the state address, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens offered clear and strong support for increasing student performance in the state.
Governor Greitens challenged lawmakers and education leaders to raise Missouri’s student outcomes by creating Education Savings Accounts for children with special needs, expanding access to Advanced Placement classes and increasing teacher pay.
“With education savings accounts, parents are able to use their fair share of state education money in a way that fits with what their kids need … Parents are much happier with their children’s educations, and children are able to get the kind of education that meets their needs.” – Missouri Governor Eric Greitens
