Gov. Jay Nixon Talks Education in Hannibal
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was in Hannibal Wednesday to tout the education spending plan he outlined in his State of the State Address.
Nixon visited Veterans Elementary School, speaking to a student assembly and then telling the press that an increase in tax revenues this fiscal year and a projected increase for next year enables him to ask for more money for the state's schools
The governor said the increased school spending would result in an additional $1.28 million dollars coming to the Hannibal school district, which would be used to increase access to early childhood education, hire more teachers and reduce class size.
