Radio Roundtable: Can Municipal School Districts Take-Over Existing Shelby County School Buildings?


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.  

Mayor Sharon Goldsworthy of Germantown, Mayor Stan Joyner of Collierville, and Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News join host Eric Barnes, publisher of the Memphis Daily News to discuss the feasibility and challenges of the new municipal school districts taking control of Shelby County School buildings.

For a review of the top news stories of the week, you can tune-in to Behind the Headlines, Friday evenings at 7 on WKNO-TV 10.

My mother introduced me to WKNO-FM and public radio long before I can remember. I suppose the first thing I really recall about WKNO-FM is that every afternoon, when my mother picked me up from school, the radio was tuned-in to The World, then All Things Considered, probably beginning around age 8. The way these reporters and hosts took you from the comfort of your mom's van to wherever in the world they were reporting from absolutely fascinated me. From then on, I was officially hooked.
