The countywide school board got the highly anticipated process of selecting the superintendent of the consolidated school system to come off to a contradictory start this week.

The practical effect of the Tuesday, June 19, school board vote not to renew the contract of Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash is that Cash probably won’t be running the transition into and at least the start of the merged school district, which begins in August 2013.

92. School Board Votes Not To Renew Cash's Contract -
