Public education is a public good – and a great public good at that! We are honored to work to protect and advance the gains made in Tennessee’s classrooms. Accountability is two-fold: teachers and students need to be ready to succeed in the classroom. We support increasing accountability to ensure every child has the tools they need. We also push for teachers to receive professional development options to help them rise to greater heights in their noble field. Gone are the days of simply throwing hard-earned, much-too-scarce taxpayer dollars at education and hoping something works.
Our children, our teachers, and our administrators deserve better than a legislature willing to spend money but not political capital to make sure every student succeeds.
