RELEASE

Speaker Philip Gunn and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves on Status of Education Funding Bill

JACKSON – “We are dedicated to revamping the current formula, which is seriously flawed and needs to be replaced with a plan that focuses on student needs in the classroom,” said Speaker of the House Philip Gunn and Lt. Governor Tate Reeves in a joint statement. “Superintendents and school business officers complain about the significant variability in dollars from year-to-year; therefore, we agree that any change should limit any appreciable impact on school districts for the 2017-2018 school year. We agree that passing something by today’s deadline has no bearing on accomplishing our ultimate goal.”
