Atlanta students make strides on national tests

ATLANTA -- Atlanta students are performing better than ever
before on national math and reading tests.

Officials with the U.S. Department of Education said Wednesday that the city's fourth- and eighth-graders have made substantial
gains on the National Assessment of Educational Progress - alled the "Nation's Report Card" - since 2002. A federal probe found that Atlanta schools did not cheat on the national test, which is administered by independent officials rather than the district.

Student group: Let Tech students carry guns for protection

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Georgia Tech -- a campus set right in the heart of Midtown near a neighborhood with a troubled past. And with that, comes the realities of big city life - crime.

The latest major crime came just Sunday night. A student was robbed and beaten while walking to his off-campus home at around 2 a.m.

One group now says they have the answer.

The Students for Concealed Carry on Campus believe students should be allowed to pack a gun to protect themselves.

"Bad guys won't bring weapons on campus if they know that we have weapons to defend ourselves with," said Andrew Mullis. "I know that I've had to walk from the library by myself several times, and I know that there's a high risk of me getting jumped any of those times. I mean, the bad guys don't need laws to bring guns on campus. We do."

But not all students agree.
