9 of 10 Knoxville youth cannot find Mabry-Hazen House on a map of Tennessee


A new study shows the further decline of Knoxville’s public education system. 9 of 10 students, ages 7-14, could not properly identify the location of the historic Mabry-Hazen House on a map of Tennessee. Although the blame could easily be assigned to inadequate funding for the schools, poor teaching, or inability of the students to learn…most researchers are firmly of the opinion that the test results are basically a reflection of the fact that a historic house simply isn’t that important to the development of the today’s youth.
