We have an abbreviated podcast today because the newsroom was busy covering a couple of breaking stories – a fatal plane crash near the Tupelo airport and the arrest of a capital murder suspect. Visit DJournal.com for more on those stories.
On today’s episode, education reporter Emma Kent (2:05) discusses how students performed on the third-grade reading test. Students must pass that test in order to advance to fourth grade, and local schools showed growth in the second year of the test, according to data that was released last week.
We will be back on Wednesday with a full-length episode.
