Williamson is a "white flight" suburb, although nobody living there wants to admit it. White flight began in 1971 in Nashville with the start of court-ordered school busing. In that year alone, 8,600 white children—18 percent of the district's white students—left the system. Busing built Brentwood, whose population doubled to nearly 10,000 by 1980 as white families raced across the Davidson County line. That's from the Scene's archives.
Bubba, the Chamber loves charters, at least ones proposed for West Nashville where business executives live. They don't care so much for charters in Antioch and probably not in Donelson, either. It's all about spending tax money to create fancy little segregated schools for the children of bizpigs. This will make the bizpigs happy and they will create jobs and it'll all trickle down to the little people.
If you can call for the firing of Munch, one of the smartest ex-offensive linemen who ever lived, then you don't love our Titans.
The states aren't taking over the cost of anything. The federal government pays 100% of the Medicaid expansion through 2016, and then 90% of the program's costs after that. For those already eligible, feds pay 70% of the cost in Tennessee.
Yes, that unemployment compensation train wreck is accidentally on purpose.
Designers have taken over The Tennessean. The paper is getting smaller and smaller but that doesn't stop them from wasting space with ridiculous pictures, goofy "info" boxes and other bullshit. They should let the actual news people run things.
You can make plans. Pay for a private school or send your kid to the public one. Don't plan on a publicly funded private one.
