Memphis Voters To Decide School Merger Proposal

Voters in Memphis go to the polls Tuesday to decide whether to merge the city's school system with that of suburban Shelby County. Both city and county schools are funded through joint tax revenues. But after Shelby County officials asked the state to separate the county into a new taxing district, the city school board dropped its school charter and forced the merger vote.
