Ronnie Musgrove leading group recruiting school districts to join lawsuit against state

JACKSON, Mississippi –Former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove is leading a group traveling Mississippi in the hopes of convincing school districts to join a lawsuit which, if successful, would force the state to repay some $1.5 billion it has shorted its public schools since 2008….

…A spokesman for Musgrove, who was lieutenant governor when the funding formula was enacted, declined comment Friday. It appears only a handful of districts have signed up so far for the lawsuit.
