School and District Accountability Ratings

Write a Letter to the Editor

Nationally, Mississippi ranks 25th in the rigor of our academic standards (Education Next, report published May 2018) and 47th in per pupil school spending (U.S. Census, Public Education Finances: FY 2017, published April 2019).

Speaker Gunn's proposed income tax elimination jeopardizes teacher pay raises and school funding far into the future.
