State to Study Separate District for Troubled Schools

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The State Board of Education is likely to study a new plan to create a separate statewide school district in Mississippi to take over troubled schools and school districts…

…The board discussed the study Thursday in a work session where frustration over inability to turn around schools boiled over. Board member Wayne Gann of Corinth says Mississippi “has the worst political environment for public education in the state since desegregation days.”
