YOUR TURN: Jackie Woodard on the search for a superintendent

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Jackie Woodard. Woodard wrote to express her opinion on the state of Memphis City Schools and the search for a new school superintendent. She's reminding us that the new leader will be a superintendent, not Superman.

In her words:

"Why are we spending so much time on who is running the school system?  Until a change is made in the parental involvement in these kids’ lives, nothing will change. You can pay a superintendent as much money as you want, but until you have parents who will supervise, guide, and teach their children, you will always have a failing school system.  You have so many kids in the Memphis City School system who don’t have proper training at home to function in a school setting. Get real people. It’s our responsibility as parents to guide our children and bring them up with the best values possible."

That's Jackie Woodard's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
