We spoke up. Legislators listened. The Mississippi Legislature has approved an additional $100 million dollars to fund the schools our students deserve.
Together we're stronger. Together we're heard. This happened because thousands of educators came together to raise our collective voice for our students. When we speak together with one voice, we can make changes to improve the lives of our students and our community.
WE'VE GOT MORE WORK TO DO.
School districts will be deciding how to prioritize and spend the additional funding soon.
As educators, we know what's best for our schools. That's why we're coming together again—this time to tell district leaders what should be prioritized and how the additional school funding should be spent.
