        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. That’s the first step; now we have to see how many people will go to the polls and vote for something that might raise their taxes or cut other services they want, too.

                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)

                  We need to help our schools help our children

Our View expresses concern about these numbers and urges all parents and caregivers to do their part to help with the extra measures the local schools are taking to help our young students. (September 25, 2014, Page 4A)
