Citizens for Quality Education / Southern Echo

Citizens for Quality Education/Southern Echo in Jackson, Mississippi and Holmes County, Mississippi, began its work to improve schools in Holmes County in 1996.

Through CQE, parents and students work together to hold the school board accountable for improving the performance of the schools in the district.

They have fought for and won revision of the district’s disciplinary policies, created an after-school math enrichment program, and published a report that sheds light on the “mis-education and criminalization” of youth.
