CABOT, Ark. (KAIT) - Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a town hall in Cabot to discuss the LEARNS Act.

The Cabot Veterans Parks Event Center hosted the town hall at noon Monday.

The Lonoke County community filled the room to ask questions and learn more about the LEARNS Act.

“The long-term success of our students frankly determines the long-term success of our state,” Sanders stated.

The Governor stated the act would raise teacher pay, emphasize literacy in early education and provide options for parents with kids on different learning levels.

“Every child has the ability to learn in the right place, and we want to make sure those students have every opportunity available,” Sanders said.

Secretary of Education Jacob Olivia joined Sanders at the town hall and said these town halls are extremely beneficial.

“This isn’t the finish line. We’re going to continue to work on additional policies and additional rules to continue to get it right,” Olivia added.

This is one of the many town halls Sanders hosted. Sanders held a town hall in Russellville Monday, May 15.
