Mississippi voters may face the most confusing ballot question of 2015

Mississippi voters may face the most confusing ballot question of 2015 | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
They'll have at least four choices on November's ballot -- not all of which are terribly clear.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

IS it any wonder Mississippi legislators have been effective AT under-funding education for so long and retaining one of the lowest ratings nationwide for the Mississippi Education System? Look at their latest move....


Mississippi offers Lessons on how to keep education underfunded for a decade. The elected legislators that number less then 200 decided to undermine the efforts of the 200,000 citizens of Mississippi that seek to fully fund education. The legislators seek to retain the right to continue to under-fund education and follow their demonstrated  direction without interference from the community and avoid bringing court challenges to their decisions as 21 counties have recently challenged through courts. While some schools in some areas weathered the under-funding well, many lost teachers and programs and much needed funding for reading specialist k-12, as well as funding for other specialist.


The state legislators answer for children with reading problems as of last year is to leave them in the 3rd grade until they read on grade level. Never mind they are repeating everything else they may have succeeded in during the 3rd grade. It also does not allow for under-diagnosed hearing or vision problems, or learning issues, poverty or home life that can cause a student to struggle on different subjects, lack of interest and all types of other issues that might affect reading.
