This week on the Behind the Headlines Radio Roundtable, with municipal schools passing by overwhelming margins in Germantown and Collierville, the next hurdle is to determine whether the municipalities can take over existing school buildings.

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?

Host Eric Barnes, publisher of the Memphis Daily News discusses the repercussions of Judge Hardy Mays' ruling to halt the municipal school districts in Shelby County Suburbs, with Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News; Sharon Goldsworthy, Mayor of Germantown; David Pickler, member of the Unified School Board; and Martavius Jones, also a member of the Unified School Board.
