Mississippi confirms Gov. Perdue’s criticism yet again

Gov. Perdue took some heat earlier this year when she pointed out that the General Assembly seemed to be bent on transforming North Carolina into Mississippi-on-the-Atlantic. As we’ve  noted here and here however, she was actually on the money with her comments.

Today, there’s new confirmation of just how desperately screwed up things are in the state that conservatives in the North Carolina frequently hold up as a model. This is from the folks at Think Progress (who also supplied the photo at left):

“The Department of Justice on Friday uncovered a so-called “School-to-Prison pipeline” in Mississippi, where teachers and principals are shipping off children into the criminal justice system for infractions as small as a dress code violation.”

    None of this is to imply that North Carolina doesn’t have its own problems in this area but it is safe to say we’re not this far gone…yet.
