We just added an event that hits Thursday night, a Stand For Children "Ed-Chat with Dr. Wanda Rushing" focusing on "School Unification: Aspirations and Expectations." Rushing is a sociology professor at the University of Memphis. It's set for 6 p.m. Thursday at Second Presbyterian Church, which is at 4025 Poplar Avenue (the flyer has "PDS" in parenthesis, so perhaps the actual meeting is in the Presbyterian Day School facility adjoining the church). EDITOR'S NOTE: The original post incorrectly stated that the meeting would be Wednesday night.
The flyer says, "Come Learn:
1. What is the importance of unification for Memphis and Shelby County as well as the Metropolitan Area?
2. How do all children benefit?
3. What can we learn from school mergers in other states?
Decisions are being made NOW that will affect your children, your children's children amd the future of Memphis and Shelby County."
