ASD Backs Off Southside Middle

I was getting ready to go to a meeting at South Side Middle School this afternoon to advocate against Shelby County's school board decision to hand over SSMS to the KIPP cultists when I got an email that South Side had been removed from the ASD hit list for next year.  Congratulations to the hard-working teachers and parents at South Side!

If there is reason to doubt the sanity of closing South Side Middle for a worse KIPP school, then there is every reason to take Wooddale Middle off the list as well.  Presently Wooddale is scheduled to be turned over to the Green Dot charter profiteers from California. 

Below are the numbers from the State website that clearly indicate that Wooddale cannot be in the bottom five percent of schools in Tennessee.
