Good News for Atlanta

According to a recent article in the AJC, "A new study ranks Atlanta the fifth-most literate major American city, up from sixth last year and eighth the year before. ...

Seattle came in first, followed by Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. Rounding out the top 10 were Portland, St. Paul, Boston, Cincinnati and Denver.

Seattle has finished in the top two for five straight years.

Central Connecticut State University graded cities of 250,000 residents or more in several categories, including educational level, Internet resources, number of bookstores, library resources, newspaper circulation and local publications."

Wonder if school system employees are having the same issue county employees are having:

This makes sense. Atlanta is the home of many outstanding colleges. Several of the colleges do not get the attention that they deserve.

There are so many highly educated individuals in the Atlanta area. Atlanta is the home of many national companies. It is a National Pup for many other companies. It is a major destination for conference for individuals to receive more educational experience.

Atlanta is also a great place to live. The weather is great most of the year.

School system employees received their pay on December 18th. I know for the past ten years, the Dec 31st pay has been received on the last day of school.

Bi weekly or monthly employees did not get paid on the 18th, only teachers and others that get paid monthly.
