We support Initiative 42: Our view

But at the end of the day, we have faith in our judicial system — particularly in our state Supreme Court — to listen to reason and take into consideration what is adequate and efficient in light of economic realities.

Unfortunately, we — like many other Mississippians — have lost faith in the Legislature to provide adequate and efficient funding for our public schools. For too many years the Legislature — whether under the leadership of Democrats or Republicans — has shirked its responsibility to our schools, to our teachers and, most importantly, to our children.

For these reasons, we are endorsing the passage of Initiative 42.
