Following last week's surprise announcement that longtime Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton would step down this summer in hopes of taking over the city's troubled school district, the Commercial Appeal handicaps the likely field. So far, nobody knows nothing. In fact, Herenton has since backtracked, announcing yesterday that he'll stay on at City Hall if he doesn't win the schools chief job.
Herenton has served as Memphis superintendent of schools before and wants the job again. Earlier this year, he was looking to join the parade of big-city mayors who have wrested control from elected school boards. Guess becoming superintendent again would make winning control that much simpler.
