YOUR TURN: Wishing for divine intervention

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

The "Your Turn" mail box is full again this week with letters about the upcoming Memphis City Schools charter surrender election. Many of the comments were sparked by the Action News 5 debate Wednesday night between surrender proponent, Tomeka Hart, and the opposition leader, David Pickler. We chose a letter this week from Becky Banks, who agrees with Pickler.

In her words:

I am a retired teacher from Memphis City Schools.  Thank you for airing the debate this evening.  I thought what Mr. Pickler said at the end was wonderful.  He sounds like he genuinely cares about the children of both districts.  This shouldn't be about politics and power games.  His quote from Martin Luther King was right on target.  May God help us all.

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