How much more confirmation do we need that Memphis is poor and undereducated?

Now, what to do about it?

1) Aggressive availability of birth control – not abstinence lessons which don’t work. Focus on women, not men. Focus on long-term contraception, not on condoms or daily pills.

2) Pre-natal care

3) Maternity ward visits

4) Home nurse visits

5) Quality early childhood

6) Improved schools

7) Lots of extra activities – after school, summer, sports, music, art, clubs, field trips, visits with people with different carrers, extracurricular opportunities galore. No idle hands.

What would you add to the list?
