NEWARK, Del. (AP)- Gov. Jack Markell says Delaware needs to raise starting salaries for teachers as part of the state's effort to improve public schools.
 
Markell on Wednesday also called for higher pay for math and science teachers and for educators teaching in difficult school settings.
 
Markell joined Delaware education and business leaders at the 6th annual Vision 2015 Conference on Education at the University of Delaware.
 
Vision 2015 is a coalition of public, private and civic leaders from across the state formed in 2006 to develop a comprehensive plan to improve Delaware's public education system.
 
While calling for higher teacher pay as a way to retain talented educators, Markell said he's still formulating his thoughts on the issue and doesn't know whether he would include it in his January budget priorities.
