Op-eds for Impact

“The INSPIRE Act’s update to our funding formula should be celebrated. Weighted distribution of funds in all districts will ensure that our attention is trained on the growing diversity of Mississippi students. It will reflect a new and fairer approach to education, one that mirrors the lived experiences of teachers across the state, who teach students from all backgrounds and skill levels and who are gathered within the same four walls and sit in the same metal desks scattered about the classroom. All with one common goal: to learn.”
