Lincoln County School District’s state funding for the 2021-2022 school year is $1,815,870 below the amount required by state law. Statewide, the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP), which funds teacher salaries and classrooms, is underfunded by $271,713,157.

This is the 14th consecutive year that Mississippi has underfunded its public schools. Since 2008, the last time the MAEP was fully funded, students in the Lincoln County School District have been shorted a total of $20,339,876. During this same period, Mississippi raised its academic standards significantly, yet public schools have been denied the resources needed to meet those standards.

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.
