Just bumped into this while trying to catch up from a very busy week.
Me too. See for yourself.
Sharon Anthony, an active parent at Whites Creek High, said the district's focus on improving high schools is overdue but critically important.
"It hurts me to see what's going on," said Anthony, whose daughter is a junior at the high school. "More parents need to be aware of what's going on in public schools. The kids need to be pushed a little harder."
Anthony said the graduation rates at many Metro high schools make it clear that it's time for change. Eleven of the 15 regular and magnet high schools in the system have a rate below 70 percent."It makes me sick," she said.
