Ready to Leave

I've lived in Memphis my whole life, the past 24 years, and it only gets worse. We have great concerts and great food (especially the BBQ, of course) and that's really about it. There is no way in hell I would ever raise my children here. Our crime rate is ridiculous. Our public schools are not good. Everything on the news has to do with shootings, drugs, murders, etc. No one cares about your life here. People are getting killed over money, drugs, jealousy, or even just for innocently walking down the street. There are shootouts on innocent peoples' houses all the time. Shootings during daylight on the interstate. Homeless people everywhere. There is really no escaping it, unless you are rich enough to move out to Collierville or Germantown. This city is in a terrible cycle that will probably never end. Even a lot of our tourists fall victim to the violence here. I certainly would not recommend it.

Where is the best area for kids? I have 2 kids and I am looking for an area in or around Memphis with good schools and a low crime rate. ( I know, the American dream....) Can anyone pass on some wisdom about the Memphis area? I will be commuting into an area on the southeast side of Memphis near Germantown.
