Rep. Jay Hughes: New School Spending Ranking

Spending – There is a direct correlation:

$11,009 National Average of per-student public school spending

$8,263 Mississippi per-student public school spending

46 Mississippi Ranking in public school spending

$176 Million Amount Public schools funded this year than what law requires

$9 Million Amount public schools cut after tax cuts produced less revenue

$4.8 Million Latest cut to Dept. of Ed last month to cover shortfalls

Claims by leadership:

“If our growth and state revenue moves back to where it needs to be that will increase the funding that flows to the classroom.” – Chairman of House Education Committee

“We have given more to public education than ever before.” – Senate Education Committee Chairman. (Shows how low we have been)

“There might be adequate funding within the state Department of Education — it’s just not going to the classroom.” – Speaker of the House. (must not be counting the $24 Million in the Classroom Supply Fund that went to the general fund instead of the classrooms).

We must do better!
