I just happened upon this whole discussion by chance, however, it is interesting to see such passionate comments. In my opinion, I am hoping that the pleading we saw from the mayor of Germantown and others begging to keep the three namesake schools, is similar to the pleading we saw when Brer Rabbit was begging not to get thrown in the briar patch. Really, send the Collierviile kids at Houston to their city school and we can educate the city of Germantown students just fine with the remaining schools. Germantown schools for just Germantown kids.....isn't that the briar patch we want thrown into?
