Memphis parents should be PISSED!!!

Sorry for the indelicate language but how the hell else can you say it. Many Memphis City Schools have miserably failed urban, mostly minority students. Certainly not all Memphis Schools are miserable but far, far too many certainly are.

Year after year after year tens of thousand of students are condemned to miserable, violent, drug infested schools that produce discouraged, cynical kids who have no sense at all of their enormous potential.

It is a scandal of epidemic proportions and yet year after year the status quo is allowed to persist because those who have political power want it that way. Teacher's union and and the educational bureaucracy are focused on survival, that is their primary directive.
