There is great news for Mississippi families of students with special needs. Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant and the Legislature just passed legislation to give families Education Scholarship Accounts (ESAs), allowing moms and dads to direct the education spending for their child.
If you have friends who are parents of children with special needs, please share this exciting information with them.
The strong support of Mississippi families and the leadership of Governor Bryant, the Mississippi Legislature and the Mississippi Department of Education have made an impact in the Magnolia State. Because of these efforts, more parents are now empowered to make decisions about their children’s education and Mississippi students have additional access to the education that meets their unique needs.
