DESOTO COUNTY, Miss. -- After a hectic summer, educational history was made this week.

Six new school districts started from scratch, Shelby County Schools was scaled back in size, and bus drivers reported to work.

Meanwhile in DeSoto County, there’s a clamping down on non-residents sending their kids to attend school.

    I have a question. while I understand their crackdown policy. What if the Mississippi resident had a family member to come and take their child to school for them because of maybe an early start time at their job and that relative had Tennessee tags? This does not mean that the resident does not live in Mississippi.
