Many parents are unhappy with their choices, or lack thereof, of where they can send their children to school in Mississippi
Mississippi public school students are beginning their 2011-2012 academic years, and some parents are unhappy with their children’s schools and wishing they had another place to go.
Cynthia Jackson, the mother of a rising fifth-grader in the Canton School District, wishes she could afford to live within the Madison County School District, where the schools are better.
“I have to pass (Madison public schools) every day to go to work. It’s kind of heart-breaking to look over there. It’s been bringing tears to my eyes that this is where my child needs to be, and I can’t do anything about it,” Jackson said.
