The Brookhaven Tea Party doesn’t believe the anti-Common Core measure backed by Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves is anti-Common Core enough, and it warns that it’s a plot by Reeves to help enrich former Gov. Haley Barbour “cronies and his K-Street lobbying firm.”
Reeves supports Senate legislation that creates of a 27-member commission to draft academic standards — his effort to do away with Common Core.
But the tea party group is urging people to support legislation by Sens. Michael Watson and Angela Burks Hill.
