BTH: Porter-Leath and Shelby County Schools Part Ways


Since 2014, Shelby County Schools has partnered with Porter-Leath, a nonprofit focused on early childhood education for at-risk and low-income families. Last month, SCS made the decision to end its seven-year collaboration.

The separation came after SCS decided to ramp up its own in-house work for early education.

Porter-Leath's Vice President of Development, Rob Hughes, and Daily Memphian reporter Daja E. Henry join this week’s WKNO-TV Behind the Headlines with host Eric Barnes. In addition to discussing SCS’s recent decision, guests talk about Porter-Leath’s present and future endeavors.
