Good morning, Nashville. After repeated warnings from Governor Phil hoping to prepare parents for lower TCAP scores, the results are finally coming in and they’re pretty bad. Because officials thought that the test was so easy that it wasn’t giving accurate feedback, they made it more difficult this year and graded it a little differently. As a result, many kids and parents are upset because they’re scoring so poorly compared to previous years even though they’re performing the same.
- Looking back. It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since Mayor Dean took office, but with only one year left in his term, he’s looking back on what it was like to lead a city through a recession and one of the most devastating natural disasters in Nashville’s history.
- Good news for Schermerhorn. The flood-damaged Schermerhorn Symphony Center could reopen as early as January. Crews are currently reinstalling the commercial kitchen, and they’ll eventually have to replace the entire heating, A/C and electrical systems.
- Bits & pieces. Yesterday’s grand reopening of the Grand Ole Opry House was a big ol’ party … TDOT is planning an overhaul of the state’s bike routes and they really, really need your input … WPLN has been taking a close look at chronic homelessness in Nashville this week … Thanks to an increase in the NHL’s salary cap, the Preds are nearing a $50 million payroll.
