We Can’t Afford to Lose This Ground

A NEW CHALLENGE FOR THE PARENTS’ CAMPAIGN: Since our founding, the Barksdale Reading Institute has been a terrific partner and significant funder of The Parents’ Campaign. With the sunsetting of BRI, that funding will cease. For the first time, we must rely on our supporters to help sustain our work. Please join our effort to bridge this funding gap with a donation that fits your budget.

The best way you can help is to become a sustaining donor with a donation that recurs on a monthly basis. And because a generous supporter is matching all donations up to $25,000, your one-time or recurring gift will be doubled! Secure the match by donating here: https://msparentscampaign.nationbuilder.com/donate.

The progress we have made together over the years is astounding:
• more than $1-billion in additional funding for public schools
• nearly $500-million in teacher pay raises ($10,750 per teacher, on average)
• improvements to the state accountability model
• first-ever state investment in high quality pre-k, with many advancements in access
• the defeat of countless voucher bills, the EdBuild formula rewrite, and the plan to eliminate the income tax, which would have devastated public school budgets
• the election of pro-public school legislators who support our teachers and children

• and much more

But that progress is fragile. Just one bad legislative session could wreak havoc on our public schools and set us back decades. We can’t let that happen. If each of us does our part, we can continue to be your eyes and ears at the Capitol, keeping you informed without missing a beat.

Where would we be without The Parents’ Campaign? That question has been posed to me many times as teachers, parents, and lawmakers have contemplated how different public education might look were it not for your terrific work. Please dig deep and ensure that The Parents’ Campaign remains viable by making your donation today: https://msparentscampaign.nationbuilder.com/donate.

Our children and teachers are counting on us, and together, we’ve got this!
