The Better Schools/Better Jobs Organization has put together a petition drive to amend the Mississippi Constitution to fully fund the Mississippi Adequate Education Program. Initiative Measure #42 will not raise taxes, but seek 25% of new tax revenues when our state's general fund grows. Underfunding of MAEP has resulted in a $1.5 billion shortfall for education. This initiative will put full funding to a vote. Please sign the petition at your child's school or school event. Please sign only once and on a petition for the county in which you live. Your help is greatly appreciated!!
