Whalum, who was an outspoken member of the Memphis City School Board, stated this on the observation:
I think it’s a colossal waste of educational resources at best, and an inhumanely-cruel and slow-acting poison pill at worst.”
Whalum is a graduate of Morehouse College, Temple University School of Law and the Memphis Theological Seminary. Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee.
