    Feds accuse New Summit private school leaders of bilking $2 million in Mississippi public school dollars

    When agents arrested Nancy New and her son Zach New last year on charges they allegedly stole $4 million in Mississippi welfare dollars, onlookers speculated how the popular private schools they ran, New Summit, may be implicated.

    The founder of a private school in Mississippi and her son are accused of submitting fake reimbursement claims to get their hands on $2 million in state education dollars — some of which they used to buy a house, prosecutors said. Nancy New, 67, and her son Zachary New, 38, were charged in a 17-count indictment with conspiracy to defraud, wire fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Mississippi said Thursday in a news release. Zachary New and his mom, who founded New Summit School in Jackson, are accused of submitting ...

Halfway through the year at the Jackson private school, “she was reading poems on her own with words as large as ‘wonderment,’” her mom, Jodi Kimbrell Hinds, recalled. By the end of her first year, the girl — now a ninth grader at the school — was reading on grade level. “It was life changing,” the mom of two said. “Mary Harbin is just a mystery. She can do great at some things ...

    Alleged scam: Nancy New’s school claimed to treat hospitalized kids

    Nancy New and her son Zach, owners of several for-profit and nonprofit organizations, were well on their way to building an education empire in Mississippi. Their private schools, called New Summit, had been gaining acclaim, especially for catering to nontraditional students and those with disabilities — the only type students the state can pay private schools to educate. “School choice” — the concept of allowing tax dollars to follow a student to a private school — was becoming a rallying cry in the Republican-dominated state Legislature. Lawmakers were shorting public schools hundreds of millions of dollars annually according to state ...
