Hardeman County students are not alone when it comes to receiving report cards listing academic achievement. The county, which is also graded, recently received its own report card and it was a good one.
The mission of the 10 Hardeman County Schools is to “prepare each child for the future by developing skills, nurturing talents, molding characters and inspiring dreams.”
Governor Bill Haslam announced that the state of Tennessee came out on top as the “number one state showing the largest academic growth in 2013,” according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The NAEP, which has been given for 10 years and is recognized as “the nation’s report card,” shows from 2011 to 2013, that Tennessee students made the state the fastest improving state in the nation for student academic growth.
