NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Vanderbilt University study on pre-K adds more ammunition for critics on Tennessee’s Capitol Hill, but Metro-Nashville school educators say they have their own way of ensuring the early education programs are worthy.
News 2’s Chris Bundgaard looked at what Metro is doing differently and why it’s working with Vanderbilt researchers to answer questions about pre-K.
Paying the best teachers more, finding more science or math instructors, or making kindergarten through third grade better are some of the other ideas floated by questioning lawmakers.
Those running Metro’s three Early Learning Center’s will beg to differ.
Gov. Bill Haslam says he plans to review data from the study.
