TOMORROW, public education supporters across Mississippi will lift our voices to send the message that we want our public schools fully funded.
Your call tomorrow is critical. We need hundreds of calls flooding the Capitol in support of full funding.
Please help us spread the word – share House members’ phone numbers and ask at least five of your friends to join us for our CALL THE CAPITOL DAY. If you’re on spring break, set a reminder on your phone to make that call from the beach or the backyard!
TOMORROW, TUESDAY, MARCH 14
Call your representative and Speaker Pro Tempore Jason White with this message:
1. FULLY FUND public schools
2. Keep public funds in PUBLIC schools

With an extra $1-billion in recurring state revenue available, now is the time for Mississippi to make good on her promise to the teachers and students who have been shortchanged for years. Your call can help us make it a reality!
The Senate has voted unanimously to fully fund an adjusted MAEP formula. It is now up to the Mississippi House of Representatives. They could present a new full funding plan, move forward with the Senate plan, or fully fund the existing MAEP.
Representatives need to know that Mississippians want full funding for their children’s public schools. Please help us flood the Capitol with phone calls tomorrow, Tuesday, March 14. Many legislators ran on a pledge to fully fund public schools if and when the state budget would allow it. With state coffers overflowing – and with the additional $1-billion expected to continue in successive years – that time has come! Line up your friends, family, and other public education supporters to make those all-important calls, and let’s get this done for our children and teachers. Together, we’ve got this!
