Since 2008, the last time the MAEP was fully funded, students in the Tate County School District have been shorted a total of $18,137,350.

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.
