Education is an on-going Memphis project – we are pushing to make our schools better through collaboration and creativity. To make a Memphis with more opportunity and stability for everyone, our leaders are re-focusing on preparing our citizens for success early. The newly expanded Shelby County Schools (now one of the larger systems in the country) is supplemented by various private, charter and alternative institutions. High education is a big piece of the puzzle, too, with nearly 50,000 students enrolled at Southwest Tennessee Community College, the University of Memphis, Christian Brothers University, Rhodes College,LeMoyne-Owen College and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.
