MURFREESBORO -- A Middle Tennessee State University student was injured Tuesday night on campus during an armed robbery.
MTSU issued an emergency alert at 8:48 Tuesday evening saying that a robbery had taken place outside Scarlett Commons. It was later learned the robbery actually took place inside one of the apartments.
The Tennessee Department of Education is making some changes to a waiver that would allow the state to opt out of the federal No Child Left Behind law.
Tennessee asked the federal government for the waiver back in July.
State Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman says Tennessee had little choice but to ask for relief from the law’s increasingly strict standards for yearly improvement in student test scores. He says that nearly 80% of Tennessee schools will likely fail to meet federal standards in the current school year.
