Bright & Early: Jumping For Joy Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Yesterday we heard the news that Tennessee would be raking in $500 million of new stimulus money to give a much-needed boost to the state’s struggling school systems. But how much is in it for Metro? Initial estimates are $24 million, and the catch is that none of the funds can be used to cover the operating budget. Metro hopes to focus on using the funds to attract and retain good teachers in addition to beefing up math and science programs.
