Mississippi’s House Bill 1369, which aims to fully fund the state’s Public Schools, has been kept alive after being sent to conference this morning.

The bill was amended by the Senate to fully fund the Mississippi adequate education program, which was met with excitement from teachers and public education advocates.

Although Governor Tate Reeves and house leadership were initially hesitant to support the bill, Senate education committee Vice Chairman Senator David Blunt says that progress is being made in a bipartisan way to fully fund education and give teachers the largest pay raise in history.

If the bill is signed into law, it will only be the third time in the program’s history that it has been fully funded.

The legislature has the opportunity to make history in these final days.
