Bright & Early: Long Days Ahead Edition

Good morning, Nashville. In a continuing effort to get Metro Schools back on track, Mayor Dean wants to explore some ways to increase the actual learning time for students. This could mean longer school days, summer sessions, and even some Saturdays. Though we’d imagine that this might not thrill the kids, several charter and magnet schools have already adopted the technique and found it to be pretty successful so far. Metro narrowly avoided a state takeover this year due to their failure to meet No Child Left Behind benchmarks.
