LT. GOV. REEVES ON GOV. BRYANT’S VETO OF SB 2161

“Gov. Bryant’s veto of a bill that 93 Legislative Republicans supported ensures that Common Core will remain in Mississippi schools,” Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said. “SB 2161 ensured that student privacy would be protected, prohibited school districts from administering psychological or socio-emotional surveys, put in state law that PARCC test could not be mandated by the State Department of Education, and created a group of Mississippians (of which the Governor had more appointments than anyone) to create a set of high standards for Mississippi school children.

To put this in simple terms, those that support Common Core are celebrating tonight.”
