Gov. Bryant Says Superintendent isn’t in Charge of Education, the Public is

JACKSON, Miss. – It could take years and cost Mississippi tax payers millions of dollars to develop new education standards. That was Superintendent of Education Carey Wright’s response to Lt. Governor Tate Reeve’s new support of legislation to remove Common Core education standards from Mississippi schools. Tuesday, Governor Phil Bryant said Wright needs to understand that “she is not in charge of public education in Mississippi, the public is.”

Wright and Mississippi House Education Committee Chair Gray Tollison both support Common Core standards which the state has been implementing since 2010.

Reeves said Monday that he wants to appoint a task force outside of the State Board of Education to write different education standards for Mississippi.
