This week on the Behind the Headlines Radio Roundtable, the panel discusses creating a school voucher or scholarship program for charter and private schools in Tennessee, and the potential consequences for public education in the state.
The Unified School Board has decided to not renew the contract of Memphis City School Superintendent Kriner Cash, whose contract runs out in August of 2013, about the time when the school merger will actually start.
Superintendent of Memphis City Schools Kriner Cash's contract expires in 2013. The Memphis and Shelby County school board voted not to renew that contract last night. The vote was 14-8. A similar motion not to renew the contract of Shelby County Schools Superintendent John Aitken, which expires in 2015, did not pass. That vote was 8-14.
