Reeves backs charter schools

If the latest pronouncements from Gov. Phil Bryant and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves are any indication, more charter schools soon will be cropping up across Mississippi.

Expanding charter schools is one of the top items on Reeves’ legislative agenda that was outlined Wednesday.

Under the Reeves plan, charter school legislation would expand dramatically across the state as parental groups seek to establish the new schools as an alternative to traditional schools that are failing.
