Musgrove to announce school funding ‘action’ today

JACKSON – Former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove has scheduled news conferences today in Jackson and Hattiesburg where he will announce plans to “take action to fully fund” the Mississippi Adequate Education Program.

Musgrove, who served as governor from 2000-2004 and as lieutenant governor in 1997 played a key role in steering MAEP to passage, has discussed in recent weeks plans to file a lawsuit on behalf of school districts to force full funding of the Adequate Education Program.
