Re: “Where Do We Go From Here? | School Choice

Great summary of the issues at hand. You have me doubting my choice, now. I am in favor of a unified school system, but I fear the results of the Norris-Todd law as you described. I'm not sure there is any way to get a truly unified district now. Plus, if SCS takes over the city schools and cuts the optional programs at the same time that the suburbs are creating their own districts, there could be even more urban flight. I'm even considering it myself . Honestly, I don't want Pickler in charge of the city kids' education. He clearly has no love for us here.

Re: “Granola and Yogurt at Cafe Eclectic

I had this for breakfast for the first time today and kicked myself for having not tried it sooner.

Re: “Bartlett Meeting Takes Gingerly Approach to Idea of Municipal District, Hits Merger Proponents

It's so disheartening to see groups like this only grousing and finding a way subvert the merger rather than planning the best way to manage it. I truly do not believe there will be some great exodus from the county--the Memphis kids are not being bused to Bartlett for heaven's sake. Plus, where would they go? To the stellar school districts of Fayette and Marshall counties?

(note to headline writer:
Adverbs like "gingerly" can modify verbs and other modifiers, but not nouns.)

Re: “Trouble in Paradiso?

I quit going to both Muvico and the Southaven Malco because of large groups of kids. I really don't care what color they are. Because I teach high school, I know how large groups of teens can become volatile with no warning, and bystanders can get hurt when fights break out. I would just rather not put myself in that situation. The kids of Memphis need more to do. I don't blame them for congregating where other teens are. That's just human nature. However, I will not be there.

Also, the Paradiso has always been a place to avoid because of the poor traffic flow at the entrance. The lines are not clearly defined and the only way to get a ticket is to elbow yourself to the front. It's much easier to just go to Studio on the Square. However, I hope they can deal with the crowding problem because the Paradiso is at a great location with nearby dinner and ice cream. I would go there if it weren't such a hassle.
