Ask Billy Orgel — A Back in River City Exclusive!

May 2, 2012

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, retiree, KIPSO (Kids in Private Schools Only), or a SNOK (Single, No Kids)–remember, you’ve got skin in the game of schools consolidation.  The quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of our local schools fuel the Greater Memphis economic engine and influence the quality of our everyday lives.

ADEQUATE JOBS. STRONG FAMILIES. ESCAPING POVERTY. REDUCING CRIME. WIPING OUT GANGS. IMPROVING  HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION RATES. OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIGHER EDUCATION.  ECONOMIC GROWTH. NEW BUSINESSES.

The future of Memphis depends on our getting this right.

We know you have questions about schools consolidation and how it will affect your life.  It’s a complicated process, with many moving parts. So we asked Billy Orgel if he would help our readers get answers to those questions that are buzzing around in your head like mosquitoes on a dusky veranda.

Got a question?  Write it in the Comments section. Make it concise, please.  We will pass the best on to Billy and post his personal responses. You may also email us at eddiesettles@comcast.net.
