We are spearheading the campaign for universal Education Freedom Accounts in Mississippi.
While there have been some improvements in education outcomes, notably in reading, far too many young Mississippians are still receiving a substandard education.
- Education Support Accounts: Having spearheaded efforts to introduce a limited ESA program in the state, we are committed to the establishment of universal school choice in the state. With Arkansas and other southern states embracing universal school choice, we are driving the case for change.
- School funding reform: Mississippi’s current education funding formula funds systems, not students. We are working to change this, and we have helped devise a new model funding formula.
- More Charter Schools: Ten years after the law was changed to allow Charter Schools in our state, we still only have a handful. We believe that the Charter Authorizer process is a roadblock to reform and that change is needed to make it easier for new Charter School applicants to get the go-ahead.
