            Education funding hinges on ballot box

            Thousands and thousands of Mississippians have signed petitions to place a referendum on the ballot in 2015 that would require complete funding of MAEP.

Editor Don Whitten takes a look at the issue which serves a good purpose — the education of our children — but promises to bring more discussion before it’s all said and done. (October 12, 2014, Page 4A)

                    Hear about a book fair at your student’s school. We suggest dropping by; it’s a great way to support the schools and to help our students with their reading. (October 2, 2014, Page 4A)
