Mississippi's Struggle Over Education
American Politics | Journalism Studies
The debate over education issues moves from the floor of the state legislature to the Overby Center in a special program with Rep. Cecil Brown, Democrat of Jackson, and Sen. Gray Tollison, Republican of Oxford. Andy Mullins, who worked for years as the university’s point man on legislative issues, moderates the discussion which touches on major issues ranging from a dispute over Common Core to the growing charter school movement to a voter initiative that attempts to force the Legislature to better fund public schools.
