Plans and reports cards

It'll be a busy Monday evening/Tuesday morning for people interested in Metro Schools.

This evening at 6:00 p.m. at Maplewood High School the plans for restructuring this school will be revealed. With the highest drop out rate of 42% and the lowest average ACT score of 15.7 this school is rightly on the Tennessee Department of Education's list of failing schools. These children need immediate answers to their needs. These children don't have any more time to waste. Something has to be done now that will actually improve their lives.

Tuesday morning, February 20th, at 8:30 a.m. the Chamber of Commerce Report Card grading Metro Schools will be revealed at the Adventure Science Center. Let's hope that this time they included some cumulative information that gives us not just a snapshot of today but a clear overview of past years to place this current information in context. Since they've been creating these report cards for several years--that shouldn't be all that hard to do.

UPDATE: Anonymous points out the the Chamber's report will be done Tuesday February 20th. My mistake. Thanks for catching that Anon. I appreciate the help. :-)
