Jr did you notice how Stand for Children, the organization working to destroy public education, is listed as something people should support? Please change that part of your article Ms. Parks. Stand seeks to create more segregation through charter schools and vouchers. They do not work for justice.
Great job on the reporting!
So you plan to retain teachers by taking away their pension and benefit systems?
Also, this is a quote from an earlier article in this newspaper, by John Branston.
"The Tennessee Report card shows that enrollment is 104,829 in 2009 and 110,753 in 2007. But there were more administrators (439 to 359), schools (199 to 194), teachers (7,259 to 6,438), and per-pupil spending ($10,394 to $9,254) in 2009 than in 2007."
The Tennessee Report card states that per-pupil spending was $10,394. Please give the public the source of your numbers, Mr. Warren.
Don't you mean that the price per student is $8,666.67?
A $936,000,000 budget divided by 108,000, the number of students according to MCS, is $8,666.67. What numbers where you using instead of these?
Well, he is right about needing a way to get across I-240. It's difficult to find a safe way across if your vehicle's top speed is only 20 mph. Shady Grove, while acceptable, is not ideal. There is no bike lane on the overpass, and it has only a picture of a bike on a sign to make cyclists safe. Not even the words, "Share the Road."
Until Memphis improves cycling facilities, it would be unfair to ban electric bikes from the greenline.
Criticizing Israel's policies and our own government's complicity in carrying them out is not the same as Jew-hating, or anti-Semitism, as I am sure you are aware.
