Charter schools gain traction

Charter schools gained traction Wednesday as Lt. Governor Tate Reeves embraced the creation of these schools statewide.

Reeves, flanked by his committee chairmen, outlined five proposals included in his 2012 legislative agenda at the state capitol. Among them, significant school district consolidation. Reeves said, “The one item I think we should do quickly soon is the consolidation of the three school districts in Sunflower County into one. Currently Indianola, Drew and Sunflower districts are all under conservatorship.”
