Court ruling will determine if Legislature needs to address charter schools

The lawsuit contends that the way charter schools are funded in the state is unconstitutional. It points to two sections in the Mississippi constitution that say a school district’s ad valorem taxes – or local funding – may only be used for the district to maintain schools it oversees. It also cites another section that says the Legislature must not appropriate any money to a school that is not a “free school.”
