Governor Bryant responds to low MS education rankings

Here's what the Governor said about the rankings on Thursday:

"Mississippi's performance on this ranking is a prime example of why I pushed such bold public education reforms last year and why I'll continue working to improve outcomes in our classrooms. Our Third Grade Gate policy alone will have tremendous positive impact," Gov. Phil Bryant said. "We know that what we were doing in the past was not generating the results students need to succeed. If we are vigilant about implementing the reforms we have adopted, we will see serious improvements."
