The Tennessee State Legislature has voted to lift all restrictions on creating new municipal school districts throughout the state.

If Governor Haslam signs the bill, what will be the future of those schools in Shelby County?

Mayor Sharon Goldsworthy of Germantown, Mayor Stan Joyner of Collierville, and Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News join host Eric Barnes on the potential consequences for cities and towns creating their own school districts, as well as the effects these new school systems could have on Shelby County.
