Good morning, Nashville. Parents at several Metro high schools are a little worried after the school system decided to cut free tutoring services that many think are responsible for helping dozens of students graduate. The affected programs are those that target students in largely good standing who are having trouble academically, while more expensive tutoring programs for kids who have been suspended will continue.
- Unemployment glitch. A server glitch with Tennessee’s Department of Labor website prevented hundreds of folks from checking in with their weekly income and job search progress required to collect unemployment benefits. The problem has been resolved and they’ve instituted a three-day grace period for the people who had trouble.
- Careful out there! Break-ins are on the rise in many parts of Nashville this year and Metro is urging everyone to take some extra precautions. Incidents have increased by 11% since this time last year.
- Bits & pieces. If you’re traveling today, you may want to watch out for the blasting … But not blasting like this blasting … A child advocacy group based out of New York is trying to block a new state law that they claim would hurt foster care … A charter school’s entire fourth grade class was disbanded when Metro realized they didn’t actually exist.
