Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


We at MASS believe that the quality of our public education system is the No. 1 factor affecting Mississippi’s future. Since 1969, MASS has been championing issues that are essential in building a world-class public education system for all Mississippians.

MASS makes sure that education has a seat at the table whenever state leaders discuss Mississippi’s future. It’s important for legislators to understand the challenges our schools deal with on a daily basis so they can provide the resources that teachers and students need to be successful.

In the adjacent video, MASS Board President Adam Pugh talks about the value that MASS brings to the education profession in Mississippi and why member participation is so critical. Whether it’s addressing the need for more funding, better teacher recruitment efforts or more robust early childhood education programs, MASS has been on the front lines in the fight for a better education system.

With that said, we will host a legislative luncheon during the MASS/Alliance Winter Conference Jan. 26-29 at the Jackson Marriott. Register today and make sure your voice is heard!
