State Auditor’s Office says Mississippi Department of Education broke state laws

The report alleges MDE had contracts for duplicate services, leading to substantial waste and abuse of taxpayer funds.

“All the facts point to the fact that the Pool Method at the Department of Education was outside the bounds of state law,” said Pickering.

At least on that point, MDE says they’ve already adjusted to remedy the situation before the report came out.
