Philip Gunn speaks to Tupelo City Hall

As for as the Mississippi Adequate Education Program lawsuit is concerned, Gunn believes Mississippians should take more responsibility for ensuring first-rate education.

“I do not think a lawsuit is the way to go,” said Gunn. “The lawsuit is simply putting money into lawyers’ pockets, and that is taking money away from our children, and I do not agree with the lawsuit. I think it’s a horrible move. I do not think it should happen.”
