Lakeland, TN – Can they afford their own School District?
New developments are happening now in the school merger. All suburbs are now on board to fight the Shelby County Commission’s lawsuit to stop a vote on Municipal School Districts. They’ve all hired the same law firm to represent them in a hearing tomorrow. But, there’s one voice standing out in opposition. Former Lakeland Mayor Jim Bomprezzi says he’s studied the numbers and Lakeland, at least, can’t afford its own school district. And he’s not backing down.
