This month has gone by quickly. About 10-12 days were spent worrying about thunderstorms, a possible snow blizzard that didn’t happen and then torrential rain and flooding. Still, through all of that, we’ve written some interesting stories that you may have missed while watching Todd Yakoubian’s weather updates.
At the start of January, we interviewed a Cleveland County mom who wanted her two teenage daughters out of the school district. She successfully managed to do that after we reported on her situation. Read about her story here:
We also began investigating the Nashville School District and its drama about a hybrid schedule. Many parents in the district do not want a hybrid calendar. The school board does. Read one of those stories here and visit the site to listen to the board’s vote this week:
Richard also discovered an innovative way the Genoa School District is helping students learn English.
We’re Not Just About Education
It may seem that we just write about schools, but that’s not the case. That is, however, the topic we get the most tips about in our inbox. We also cover crime stories like this one Suzi started following:
But hold your horses! We write more than doom and gloom, too. Richard often writes about his grandpa, Pop, and in this story talks about going raccoon hunting with his beloved hunting dog, Willie.
This is just a sampling of what you may have missed in January. Check out our full site for more stories.
