Mississippi consistently ranks at the bottom of education lists and statistic reports. Are charter schools the answer? Not necessarily. 

Charter schools take students out from under the state’s eye. These “private-public” schools receive public funding but have flexibility in curriculum and hiring, and in some states they are free from standardized testing (which makes it difficult to determine the success of these ventures).

Students who fail their spring semester normally have a chance at redemption by taking summer courses, but this summer will be difficult for those students, thanks to the lack of available financial aid.

Due to fewer Pell Grants, financial aid for the summer will be very limited, and some students will have to rely on credit-based loans to cover their tuition.

A society is based on coded laws that people must follow or risk retribution. These laws aim to make society safer and better for everyone.

Unfortunately, some citizens choose to disregard these laws for a variety of reasons. There is a saying that a lock only stops an honest man, and that is exactly what gun control laws will do. Such laws won’t affect those who already break laws.

As I was walking around campus this week, I saw a student wearing a t-shirt that said “God Bless Arizona.” He was applauding Arizona for its controversial immigration law that was signed by Governor Jan Brewer last year.
