Why do we need Initiative 42?
What is this “alternative” initiative the Legislature passed in January?
Won't Initiative 42 and the resulting constitutional amendment put the power to decide K-12 funding in the hands of one Hinds County judge?
If school districts get more funding, won't they just spend it on more administrators and higher salaries for them?
The state has spent a lot of money on K-12 since MAEP was passed 18 years ago. But our ACT scores are virtually flat. Why should we spend more without measurable results?
Isn't K-12 already getting a huge chunk of the state budget?
Won't full funding for K-12 hurt other agency budgets?
How much money is “enough” money for education?
If I vote yes for Initiative 42, will the new amendment raise my taxes?
When will the ballot be available so we can see how to vote on Initiative 42?
What is 42 For Better Schools?
How can I be part of 42 for Better Schools on social media?

    We must stop short-changing our children. Over the last six years, underfunding of the Mississippi Adequate Education Program has resulted in a $1.5 billion  shortfall in funding for the education of our children. The consequences of this  are numerous, from low educational attainment to an inability of our state to attract family-sustaining jobs.
