PETITION FOR LEGISLATURE TO FULLY FUND PUBLIC EDUCATION
Please help Rankin County School District gather signatures for the Better Schools Better Jobs initiative to go on the ballot November 2015. If this amendment passes it will require the Legislature to fully fund the Mississippi Adequate Education Fund (MAEP). If RCSD had been fully funded from MAEP, RCSD would have received over $36 million additional money over the last four years.
This proposal offers our legislators a way to achieve full funding without raising taxes. It recommends they use at least 25 percent of new growth to the General Fund and put that money into MAEP over a period of a few years, where it should be. Then, the Legislature must continue K-12 funding at least at that level forever.
If you are a registered voter and would like to sign the petition, please visit our school. For more information contact your child's principal.
