Lawmakers react to Mississippi Supreme Court’s ruling on MAEP

“It’s unfortunate that the courts had to get involved to get the legislature to follow the laws it created,” noted Representative Jay Hughes. “It’s a political opinion and it gives coverage to the political people who are not in favor of public education. Quite simply, the people of Mississippi either need to wake or give up as it relates to public education. Because they’re fighting a select group that wants to privatize it.”
