The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that officials are rethinking the Technology Corridor, which has not been as successful as hoped and is not being actively promoted and marketed. There's discussion of opening it up for mixed use development that allows for residential, retail, and general office space.

There's no mention of the root problem. High tech companies aren't going to move to an area that doesn't support education and only graduates people qualified to work in call centers.

We may not have schools but man we've got some awesome roads!
And we've got great tax breaks for anyone locating here, simply 'cause we don't spend money on silly things like schools. :-)
