Bright & Early: Are We Smarter Than A Fifth Grader Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Finally, we have some good news for you: a recent study by Johns Hopkins University showed that Tennessee’s graduation rates increased more than any other state between 2002 and 2006. Not that we think Metro Nashville Public Schools had much to do with this, but we’re happy to see our kiddos finishing high school and (hopefully) not graduating into unemployment. So who can we thank for the improvement? The Tennessee Department of Education says it’s Governor Phil and an army of dedicated teachers.
