The confusing school funding vote in Mississippi; school funding accountability fails to pass
from Education World
On Mississippi voters' ballots was the option to vote for Initiative 42 or its counterpart, Alternative Measure 42A. Initiative 42 read: "Should the State be required to provide for the support of an adequate and efficient system of free public schools?" Initiative 42 is a measure backed by supporters who wanted to see higher school funding for the state's public schools. The initiative would have provided power to the state's judiciary system to hold the Legislature accountable after supporters say it "continues to break its 1997 promise to provide adequate funding."
