Making a Difference

In 2022 we secured an historic raise in salaries for Mississippi public school teachers. And we have even more plans to make life better for members and students. Join MAE today to help us create a strong public education system by: 

  • Fully funding our public schools through the Mississippi Adequate Education Program. 
  • Securing universal pre-K and Kindergarten so that every early education student in the state has the educational foundation they need to thrive. 
  • Getting a living wage for Education Support Professionals, because no staff at our schools should be making less than $15 per hour as a starting wage. 
  • Shifting from testing to learning so we can stop teaching to the test and start creating a more comprehensive approach to providing students with the education they need to be successful in a 21st-century economy.  

There is so much more we can accomplish through collective action with your help. Join MAE as an educator today.
