The LEARNS Act with Arkansas State Rep. Carlton Wing

“Whether or not we have children in that education system, we all benefit from the next generation being educated to be able to provide (…) a growing and prosperous society.”

-Arkansas State Rep. Carlton Wing

As a sponsor of Arkansas’s LEARNS Act, Rep. Carlton Wing knows that the legislation is so much more than just education funding. The bill starts with a fundamental change—making it so that the money follows the student, not the other way around. But it doesn’t stop there. The LEARNS Act also provides a historic pay raise for teachers, making Arkansas the single best state in the country to start a teaching career, and embraces the basic American principle of individual liberty: trusting people to make the best decision for themselves.
