Education has lost its freedom for the past 50 years. We have little information about what goes on in public school houses. In the district schools in Mississippi, students with dyslexia often have trouble finding the services they need. Cena Holifield is the director of the dyslexia therapy program at William Carey University. In 2008 she founded a school to serve students with dyslexia.

Everyone accepts that children have different needs and different gifts, but bureaucracies continue to address students en masse and offer families only one option that may or may not serve them well, which is no choice at all.

Scholarships are available for those with Dyslexia.

This year, Cena broadened the 3-D concept to Ocean Springs to handle more students. Now, over 480,000 students attend district schools in Mississippi. The Special Needs Education Scholarship Account, the Dyslexia Therapy Scholarship, and others exist because parents needed more options. If their zoned district school cannot meet their child’s needs, parents need more freedom to continue looking.

Key Takeaways:

1
District schools in Mississippi don’t always have the services students with dyslexia need.
2
So that their children could receive the educational services they needed, some families traveled up to 180 miles each day to the 3-D School in Petal that was founded by Cena Holifield.
3
The Special Needs Education Scholarship Account and the Dyslexia Therapy Scholarship are two of expanding school choice programs that Mississippi children have enrolled in the past five years.
