Memphis Desires To Leave ALL The Children Behind

Memphis City School Board has sent notice to Shelby County Election Commission submitting (details here) to the the voters a referendum to surrender their charter, like Knoxville did in the 1990's. By law Knox County Schools had to take over the city school system. Which caused the county schools to suffer because all the dollars for the next 12-15 years were spent bringing the city schools up to county standards. Shelby County Schools appear to be preparing (details here) for that eventual referendum and are taking necessary action to protect themselves.
