Charter Schools in Tunica’s Future?
“This community deserves options in education and charter schools provide that,” Dr. Willie W. Herenton told a crowd of citizens, educators and elected officials at a community meeting on Feb. 19 at the Tunica Museum.
Herenton, a former mayor and superintendent of Memphis City schools, spoke on behalf of the W.E.B. Du Bois Consortium of Charter Schools, Inc. The organization has submitted a letter of intent to locate in Tunica County. He predicted it is the first of many to come.
Herenton said he was born in South Memphis in a household headed by his mother and grandmother. He and his sister were charged with getting the stove ready for his mother to cook each day.
