Mississippi Today: There’s an exodus of Mississippi school leaders. Is the pandemic to blame?. “Superintendents, the chief administrative leaders of Mississippi’s 138 traditional public school districts, have in recent months been left to drive bus routes, serve food in school cafeterias, teach classes in place of teachers and substitutes, and conduct contact tracing missions to identify children who’ve been exposed to COVID-19. And in what have undoubtedly been their worst moments, they’ve lost school staff and students to the virus. Those in the education business say more superintendents are leaving before their contracts are up or are retiring early.”
