By Rachel Canter I Executive Director
Mississippi First has published a public memo to the State Board of Education to support the selection of a new state superintendent. This choice will not only be the most important decision the State Board makes this year; it will also be the most important decision they will make in the next several years.
We know that this process can be exciting but risky. Mississippi will need to choose its next education chief wisely if it hopes to continue the upward trajectory we have enjoyed over the last decade. We look forward to working with the State Board in whatever capacity we are called upon to support a successful search.
