High school and college graduates today are facing a world of uncertainty. After being uprooted from their friends, teachers and daily routines because the coronavirus, they’re entering “the real world” at a daunting time.
Nashville is up against New York, Seattle, and Dallas in trying to pull down $40 million for its school system. The competition is part of the federal grant program known as Race to the Top.
