The Nashville Scene's Bruce Barry picks up the story and got the same information I did and posted here and here.

"The answers aren’t adding up. “Last year we had the exact same embargo,” says state Department of Education spokeswoman Rachel Woods. [Chief Instructional Officer Dr. Sandy] Johnson says Metro didn’t violate the embargo last year to go public with the upbeat numbers, but Woods has a different view: “They weren’t free to do it last year; they just went ahead and did it.” She says that the state provided Metro schools with the data last year because they asked for it, and that they provided similar data last week on this year’s test results."

(Note, I consider the Scene to be an adult publication. Their advertising may not be suitable for all eyes.)
