Mar 1, 2024 by AFP

JACKSON, MS—Americans for Prosperity – Mississippi (AFP-MS) State Director Starla Brown has a new op-ed featured in the Clarion Ledger highlighting AFP-MS’ vision for transformative education reform in the Magnolia State this legislative session and how a well-educated workforce is key for Mississippians to reignite their American Dream.

In part, Brown writes:

“As Mississippians, we are bound together by a shared commitment to fostering a brighter future for our state. Today, we find ourselves with numerous opportunities for growth, innovation and reimagining the American dream in our state.

“At Americans for Prosperity-Mississippi, our mission is clear: to increase those opportunities for prosperity for all Mississippians, regardless of race, creed, economic background or zip code. That’s a mission that transcends political and idealistic divides. At the end of the day, we all want a more prosperous, thriving Mississippi.

“A well-educated workforce is a key driver of economic development and innovation. By supporting policies that enhance educational opportunity, we are not only investing in the future of our children but also cultivating a skilled workforce that will attract businesses, create jobs and drive economic prosperity in Mississippi.

“As we advocate for more opportunity across the educational spectrum, we are mindful of the role of government in shaping policies that can either facilitate or hinder progress. AFP-MS wants to work collaboratively with policymakers to implement reforms that prioritize the needs of each Mississippian.”
