Municipal School Talks to Resume

Private meetings aimed at settling the federal lawsuit over municipal school districts in the greater Memphis area are expected to resume with the end of the holiday season, reports the Memphis Daily News. All sides in the legal matter have met behind closed doors at least twice after U.S. District Court Judge Samuel “Hardy” Mays ruled in late November that the 2012 state law allowing Shelby County suburbs to create their own school districts violated the Tennessee Constitution.
