Jackson Public School District’s state funding for the 2020-2021 school year is $11,341,512 below the amount required by state law. Statewide, the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP), which funds teacher salaries and classrooms, is underfunded by $250,379,812. 

This is the 13th consecutive year that Mississippi has underfunded its public schools. Since 2008, the last time the MAEP was fully funded, students in the Jackson Public School District have been shorted a total of $155,781,686. During this same period, Mississippi has raised its academic standards significantly, yet public schools have been denied the resources needed to meet those standards.
