This is the 12th consecutive year that Mississippi has underfunded its public schools. Since 2008, the last time the MAEP was fully funded, students in the Pearl River County School District have been shorted a total of $17,420,003. During this same period, Mississippi has raised its academic standards significantly, yet public schools have been denied the resources needed to meet those standards.
