Education report examines local schools

What is the state of public K-12 education in Chattanooga? It depends on your address. In schools with low levels of economic disadvantage, pupils perform relatively well on standardized tests and they are unlikely to be suspended from school. In schools with high levels of economic disadvantage, elementary, middle and high schools perform poorly on standardized tests and the relative number of student disciplinary problems is high.
