JACK REED JR: Initiative 42 will prioritize education

For these four reasons, Lisa and I will be voting FOR Initiative 42 on Tuesday:

n We believe Mississippi's most powerful enemy is poverty.

n We believe that a good public education system -- pre-K through 12th grade -- is our most valuable resource to help our citizens become self-sufficient Mississippians.

n Given their consistent past refusals to fully fund a Minimum Adequate Education Program, our legislators have demonstrated that it is not their priority.

n By voting FOR Initiative 42 we as citizens who care about our state and each other are simply saying we want this to be the priority.
