Charter schools expansion deal likely to pass after committee reshuffle
JACKSON: Mississippi: This week, State Speaker of the House Philip Gunn changed the partisan shape of Mississippi's Education committee, removing Linda Whittington and replacing her with Charles Busby. Whittington will become vice-chair of the Tourism Committee. With the addition of Busby (R), the Education committee will have a majority of supporters of charter school expansion. The committee voted down a bill to expand charter schools in Mississippi last year.
The reshuffle of committee appointments follows the retirement of Thomas Woods in July of 2012. Woods was replaced in a special election held on November 6, the same day as this year's general election.
