Description

The Clarion Ledger uncovered how schools in Meridian, Mississippi, have continued down the path of land giveaways, giving one businessman a $48,000 lease, only to have him sell that lease for $2.8 million. Sixteenth Section land was established in Mississippi to provide property and money to the state's school districts. (Sept. 24, 1995)
