The School Debate Goes Prime Time
January 25, 2011 at 11:10AM
Headlining a plethora of meetings, forums, colloquies, and what-have-you on the ever-simmering subject of the schools are three public debates scheduled for this week, two of them televised. On WREG-TV, News Channel 3, there is a Tuesday night encounter featuring two opposed teams — MCS Board member Martavius Jones, State Representative G.A.Hardaway, and city councilman Shea Flinn for charter surrender; and Shelby County Schools chairman David Pickler, the Rev. La Simba Gray, and Germantown Mayor Sharon Goldsworthy opposed.
