Trying to work it out.

Those of you in Memphis don't want to miss Sen. Mark Norris' (R-Collierville) comments in the Commercial-Appeal this morning regarding the special school district legislation, SB2062.

To whet your appetitie:

The legislation would allow Memphis and Shelby County Schools to establish permanent, fixed boundaries and raise funds beyond those appropriated by Shelby County, subject to legislative approval.

Q: Explain exactly how the districts would operate if these proposals are ever approved.
Q: How has Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton's consolidation campaign affected the situation?

Q: How would these changes benefit students in the two school systems?

Q: Where have you found support for this proposal in Memphis?
