We moved out of Dyersburg after living there for 48 years. One of the reasons was the schools. Quite a few of the teachers are terrible at teaching and accept bullying WHILE acting like they are trying to stop it. My kids TRULY tell us how thankful they are that we cared enough to move to a better school system. We now live in Lexington where both of my kids are in Beta clubs and have A averages. They both NEVER give me a hassle to get up each day for school which we are so happy about.
