No move on school money, raising questions about what’s next

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) –
The future of rewriting Mississippi’s school funding formula is in doubt after legislators failed to act on bills that could have made changes.

Both the House and the Senate skipped bills that could have allowed overhauls of the Mississippi Adequate Education Program. Republican leaders proclaimed that revising the formula is a top priority for the year, but proposals died when the House and Senate didn’t act on bills before a Thursday deadline.
