Bright & Early: The Sun Also Rises Edition

Good morning, Nashville. By the looks of the headlines this morning, you would think that nothing else is going on in the world besides the Titans kicking Jeff Fisher to the curb. Nevertheless, the federal government has ruled that Metro Schools must allow students in underperforming schools to transfer to better ones. Though this is standard procedures when schools don’t meet their Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) goals under No Child Left Behind, Metro had hoped to appeal the procedure because standardized testing scores were so late coming in this year. As a result, they’ll be sending out one letter to parents letting them know that students can transfer and another trying to persuade them not to.
