For waking up in Vegas. Make that having kids in Vegas. Parenting magazine lists the top ten worst cities for education in the United States. Las Vegas is the worst, and not a city from Tennessee makes the list. Lots from Texas do, though.

Education in America – Worst Cities
1. Las Vegas, Nevada 
When tough economic times hit a city, the school districts feel the pain. Thanks to Las Vegas' declining tax revenue and state aid, the school district was recently downgraded by both Standard & Poor's and Moody's, thereby thwarting plans for $5.3 billion in school maintenance needed over the next decade. Meanwhile, the school district was at the bottom of our list for pupil/teacher ratio and was in the bottom third for per-pupil spending.
