The mission of MSPEPAC is to endorse and elect pro-public education candidates to the Mississippi Legislature. It's that simple.



Are you tired of big-money interests seeking to influence education policies in our state? Join our network of MISSISSIPPIANS who have an “inside interest” in the success of our public schools!



Frustrated because partisanship is hurting our public schools? We believe Mississippi’s kids need strong advocates from both sides of the aisle. Republicans, Democrats, Independents... Join the public education party!



Why do we work to elect public education champions to #msleg? We are realistic! We know that Mississippi's economic future depends on a well-educated workforce. Now is the time!

We are Mississippians. Members from over 40 communities across the state have an “inside interest” in the success of our public schools!

Since 2018, the MS Public Education PAC helped elect more than 40 public education champions to the Mississippi Legislature.  These lawmakers are making a difference.  In the 2023 legislative session, our endorsed candidates worked with their colleagues to pass a $100 million increase in public school funding!  They were also able to defeat several anti-teacher bills and push back on privatization efforts.   

We will be counting on our 2023 winning candidates to fully fund public schools in the years ahead.  


Countdown to 2023 Election Day


"I donated to MSPEPAC because the future of Mississippi depends upon the strength of our public schools, and the strength of our public schools depends, in large part, on the support they receive from our Legislature. We need to elect legislators who will support our public schools and our state's future."

Dr. George Schimmel -- MSPEPAC member from Jackson, MS

"Public schools make a difference in the lives of Mississippians every day; they need the support of lawmakers."

Rana -- MSPEPAC member from Eupora, MS

"I believe that all of Mississippi's children deserve access to a great public education. We owe it to our children, and we owe it to our state."

Nelle -- MSPEPAC member from Starkville, MS

"I believe in public schools, and I want representatives who are willing to be public school advocates."

Carrie -- MSPEPAC member from Gulfport, MS
