David Baria: Must invest in programs & tools needed by all students

We must prepare our children to compete in the 21st Century. This means investing in programs, tools and innovations to help all students get ahead. We have far too many children who are slipping through the cracks because their public school is poorly funded or because their school house has slipped into such a state of disrepair as to be dangerous. We must also make sure we have adequately invested in programs that prepare employees for the jobs today's employers are looking to fill.

Cindy Hyde-Smith: Sees agri-tourism as a great tool in educating the youth

Through targeted marketing campaigns and educational initiatives, we can support our growers and help them increase visibility and seek out new markets. Agri-tourism has a promising future in Mississippi . What better place to jump-start this trend on a local level, than with our youth? Just think of all the schools in our 82 counties that are all looking for educational field trips. The agricultural community can provide excellent demonstrations of our most essential industry.
