314 Jameson Taylor discusses “The Mississippi Model” for education reform

On this week’s episode, Paul discusses Mississippi’s recent educational successes with Dr. Jameson Taylor of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, a free-market think tank based there.

Mississippi and New Mexico so often struggle at the very bottom of the “good” lists and rise to the top of the bad lists, but as Paul noted recently, Mississippi has seen some recent improvements in the area of 4th grade reading on the “gold standard” NAEP test.

So, what did Mississippi do to improve educational outcomes? Ironically, for many New Mexicans, this will be a case of “Back to the Future” as Mississippi’s playbook looks a lot like that of former Gov. Susana Martinez.
