What's Next for Public Education?

What now? 

It’s been a challenging few weeks for public education supporters. Many are disappointed by the choices our elected officials in Washington are making — choices that don’t seem to benefit public education. Choices that run contrary to the voice of many voters.

 In the Mississippi Legislature, the story isn’t much different. The closed-door methods of elected officials have set a dangerous precedent of cutting voters out of the decision-making process. In response, so many public school supporters like you have called or emailed legislators, making your voices heard on important issues like how our schools are funded, whether more public dollars can be sent to private schools, and how local communities can select school board members. Thank you for letting your voices make a difference for public school children!
