TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – School is out for the summer, but education is still a hot topic in Tuscaloosa.
The West Alabama Chamber of Commerce listened to State Superintendent Dr. Tommy Bice on Thursday.
Bice was present along with the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama and the city and county superintendents for a report on the state of schools.
The summit came a week before the release of the under-performing schools named on the state Accountability Act’s list.
Bice says that a number of the schools that appear on the under-performing list are middle schools.
