The Mississippi Department of Education has released their annual accountability report. There had been a transitional federal waiver as the schools moved to higher accountability standards. The waiver has expired, and the scores are predictably lower–in the Delta, one A, four C’s, sixteen D’s, eight F’s.

Psalm 147:5 (KJV)
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
Our Father in heaven,
How we grieve the problems of our school districts. We are so frustrated. So many efforts and so much money, seemingly to little avail.
You are the Great I Am. We lean on You and not on our own understanding. Guide us, Lord. Teach us how to pray. Amen.
