Wright to Congress: Miss. plan helps students ‘go directly into the workforce’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – State Superintendent of Education Carey Wright told Congress on Tuesday that the state is ramping up career and technical education offerings and is now requiring the lowest performing schools to meet with MDE personnel to review latest protocols and expectations under the Mississippi Succeeds plan.

The Mississippi Succeeds plan is the state’s iteration of how it will meet the requirements of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act. All states are required to submit such a plan to the federal government.

“Our plan builds upon the significant investments we have made in areas of early childhood education, literacy, career and technical education and professional development for all teachers,” Wright testified to members of the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
