Governor John Bel Edwards is scheduled to appear before a committee of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education today.
He'll be seeking the panel's support of his plan to increase school funding and hike teacher pay.
The full board will take up the matter tomorrow as Edwards seeks approval of his plan to increase teacher pay by one-thousand-dollars and that of support workers by $500.
He's pressing for a $29 million increase in public school funding as well.
