Schools calendar, plus Memphis-Shelby merger event Thursday at Second Presbyterian

We're going to be updating a schools calendar (easy to remember bit.ly link is bit.ly/MergeCal) at our "Schools In Transition" education page (easy to remember bit.ly link is bit.ly/SchoolsInTransition), with meetings and events, so please email us at metro@commercialappeal.com or jjones@commercialappeal.com with anything education-related we should consider including. We'll give preference to community-wide meetings/events and anything related to the merger and/or municipal school issues.

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."

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an
established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to
begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

" Notice the first two letters of "MEssage" are capitalized. We reported on information that we got from store owners, but nothing could of prepared us for the amount of emails that we got on this matter.
