Metro Schools are terrible and failing our kids. Other surrounding counties are doing a far better job. The scary thing is our kids will be ill prepared for higher education or the job market.

I think there are three legs to this stool...the teachers, yes, but what about the parents, AND the students, themselves?

I really don't like to hear all Metro Schools lumped together and passed judgement on. If you look at individual schools we have some great tests scores and strong teachers. We should try to not pass judgement until we look at the population a district is teaching and the obstacles that must be overcome to make each child a success. Remember that is why it is called a "public school" district. We don't turn anyone away who enters our doors.

I think care should be taken when reporting news like this. Often the teachers end up blamed when we are working very hard to improve TN's problem. In fact, reports such as this often lead to more pressure and additional mandates for teachers... increasing stress levels and making it hard for us to actually do our jobs. I have worked in two states and TN is the worst for the two as far as demands on teachers go. I work all the time I am awake (yes during the summer too). I do not feel that more requirements for teachers will help.
