Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders Signs Arkansas LEARNS Act Into Law

Today, surrounded by parents, students, and legislators in the Capitol Rotunda, Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed Senate Bill 294: the Arkansas LEARNS Act into law.

"As the father of four children, and now the grandfather of a precious newborn, today is a great day for the children of Arkansas," said Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Cody Hiland. "This is not just the boldest education reform in the nation, this is the pathway forward as Arkansas Republicans cast a vision to empower parents and provide educational opportunities to our young people. Arkansas LEARNS will raise teacher pay across the board, ban Critical Race Theory, bolster school safety, and enable parent's to make the best decision on where their children attend school. I applaud Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the overwhelming majority of Republican legislators who supported this historic piece of legislation.”
