State Senator David Blount: Better Schools, Better Jobs
The Better Schools, Better Jobs campaign has support from Mississippians of all political persuasions - it's not about geography or race or economic status. It's about the fate of our children's ability to get the education they need for the good jobs of tomorrow. It's also about the heart and soul of Mississippi's economic future.
Better Schools, Better Jobs is seeking to garner enough signatures to put on the November 2015 ballot a constitutional amendment for K-12 public school funding.
