[edit]

This whole article reads like a brochure to woo prospective students. It has been changed since the last time I read it, when it reflected Briarcrest's actual history as one of the church-sponsored private schools founded for white students to attend after a Memphis court mandated school busing to integrate the public schools in 1971-72.

Yes, there was just one sentence about the reason for its establishment, and that sentence had been removed at some point. I restored it. I also moved the promotional content out of the lead section and into the body, and trimmed/reworded it. What do you think now? --Orlady (talk) 04:36, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

I would like to have some information in the article about when the school become 'integrated' since it started as a segregation academy. Did it only become 'integrated' by force or what? Is there any information as to how integrated it actually is?Mylittlezach (talk) 18:01, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
