Andrea Zelinski has the story on the plans for the Achievement School District to take over a middle school in Madison.
Whether it is Madison Middle or Neelys Bend will be announced on December 12. According to the story, the ASD will talk with district leaders, teachers, and parents in the community before making the final decision.
Amid rumors that Inglewood Elementary would be handed over to the ASD, parents there rallied opposition to a takeover.
In Memphis, parents and teachers are increasingly speaking out about the ASD takeovers.
A data analysis provided earlier this year at Bluff City Ed indicates the ASD is struggling to hit its targets or even out-perform district schools.
