Lt. gov. wants charter school choice for all districts

Reeves said, “More students are trapped in failing public schools in C districts than they are in F districts. … We already have a bad charter school law in Mississippi. We don’t need another one.”

Nancy Loome, director of the Parents’ Campaign — a public schools advocacy group — sent an email to thousands of parents and teachers. It says “you should be worried,” about talk of a “bill that would allow charter schools in all districts, despite the clear message from constituents that charters should be limited to areas with low-performing schools.”
