JACKSON, Tenn. — The state commissioner of education made a stop Wednesday at one of Jackson-Madison County’s top performing schools. Education Commissioner Candice McQueen, as part of her Classroom Chronicles, toured and met with students and staff at Madison Academic Magnet High School on Allen Avenue. The school has been a top performer academically in local, state and national competitions. “To get a sense of what’s happening in real classrooms in real places, real schools, and see how our policies and practices and reforms are actually being handled inside classrooms,” McQueen said of her reason for the school visits. The commissioner also held a teacher round table Wednesday afternoon at Andrew Jackson elementary. The two stops in Jackson were part of six school visits Wednesday in West Tennessee.
