Reeves vows to push for tax cuts, school choice

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said he will again push for students to be able to cross district lines to attend charter schools, and for a corporate tax cut coupled with a “raise for taxpayers,” or individual income tax cut.
Reeves on Monday outlined his priorities for the 2016 legislative session that begins Tuesday. He spoke at the Stennis Institute for Government’s press corps luncheon in Jackson.

“I don’t believe some arbitrary line should preclude parents getting the best education possible for that child,” Reeves said…

…Reeves also said he wants lawmakers to review, and likely change, the Mississippi Adequate Education Program funding formula for K-12 public education. He said the formula, passed in 1997, is outdated and its spending policy is based on C-level districts.
