Shelby County Schools officials filed suit Monday in Davidson County Chancery Court against the state over public education funding, Memphis Daily News reports. “This is a pivotal day for the future of Shelby County Schools and its students,” Teresa Jones, Shelby County Schools board chairman, said. “We want to provide them with the best possible education to set them on the path to success. But it is imperative that we have the proper resources to do so.” School systems in Chattanooga filed a similar lawsuit earlier this year.
