Our Strategic Plan

To grow and strengthen the Mississippi Association of Educators, we will organize our members around issues that impact teaching and learning as well as the communities in which our students live and the lives of our students within those communities.

Our Legislative Priorities

Every year, MAE advocates on behalf of students and members to the Mississippi Legislature so that we can create the best and strongest public schools. Check out our priorities for the 2024 legislative session.

Advocating strong public schools for every student and every public school employee

Mississippi Association of Educators (MAE) represents thousands of Mississippians—educators, students, activists, workers, parents, neighbors, friends—who believe in opportunity for all students and in the power of public education to transform lives and create a more just and inclusive society.
