Considerable improvement is needed if Mississippi is ever to meet her potential in terms of prosperity, economic development, and quality of life. It is important to remember that, as Mississippi students and teachers strive to improve, they are chasing a moving target. Students and teachers in other states are improving, as well. It’s hard to catch up, particularly given that students and teachers in other states are consistently provided much more in the way of resources and funding. Mississippi’s own experience shows that adequate school funding is correlated with achievement.
