Hutchinson said the state should find ways to help rural schools, an apparent reference to a proposal to ease curriculum standards to save a Paron school from closing. The proposal, introduced during a special legislative session this month by Hutchinson's nephew, state Rep. Jeremy Hutchinson, passed the House but died in the Senate education committee.
"Whenever a rural school is performing and providing a quality education for the students and whenever they're financially sound, I believe the state of Arkansas should be a friend to that school and not an enemy," Hutchinson said.
