Bright & Early: On The Ball Edition

Good morning, Nashville. As the first of the stimulus money starts flowing into Tennessee, the folks at Metro Nashville Public Schools are still waiting for their cut. At $15 million in the hole, they’ll be receiving almost $26 million in extra funding with one catch: It can only be used for Title I, or low-income, programs. Though it probably won’t salvage any jobs, it’s still good news for us since most of the kids in MNPS are considered low-income (Not-so-fun fact: about 75% of the kids in MNPS use the free and reduced lunch program.) Until they actually receive the money, they won’t be making any decisions about what to do with it.
