Are Charter Schools the Only Way?

In legislative sessions past, the Democratically controlled house acted as a firewall defeating charter school legislation before it hit the house floor. What a diff’rence a day made. Maority In Mississippi: GOP on verge of winning the House. The GOP majority are now pursuing an agenda that their electoral majority supported and voted for.

Because we failed to act and lead. Because we failed to become engaged and organized. Because we allowed our school districts to deteriorate and fail. Because we failed to support our Democratic nominees and elect a progressive house and senate majority. Here “we” are.

We had an opportunity to address this issue. Now the GOP has the reins and the will to address the issue whether we agree with their solution or not. What do we do now?
