YOUR TURN: Ann Nero on Memphis City Schools issues

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Ann Nero. Nero is one of several who wrote in, upset about the way city officials are dealing with Memphis City School issues.

In her words:

"It's a sad day to see our elected officials holding the children of Memphis hostage. Political posturing just may bring our community to its knees. We pay for what we value. It is more than obvious that all but two of our City Council members talk about caring for children, but "sell out" to save Memphians an average of $40 per household in taxes. They value getting re-elected more than they value education for our children. By slashing the school budget as they have, they may be surprised when Election Day rolls around again. It is my hope that thousands of teachers and parents will see to that."

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