Mississippi First is committed to producing and providing documents and resources that will help to raise public awareness around key education reform issues in Mississippi. Most recently, Mississippi First has been working on creating a variety of resources specific to charter schools in the state. These resources help identify what charter schools are and explain the process of opening a charter school in Mississippi. Additional resources about charter schools can be found on ourĀ Charter Schools Resource Page.
