Clarksdale to receive new charter school

Clarksdale Mississippi will receive a new charter School.

However, some say that the new charter school would only create competition in the district that would hurt the system.

“The superintendent of education from Clarksdale public schools spoke at the hearing yesterday and he spoke out against this proposed charter saying that this would create competition in the district and that would hurt their competition,” said Grant Callen, President of Empower Mississippi.
