Over the past eight years, Tennessee has celebrated historic gains in public education.

ACT scores and on-time graduation rates are on the rise, more students are taking advantage of early postsecondary opportunities, Tennessee has twice been named the fastest improving state in the nation in education, and the right people, policies, and priorities are in place to make sure every student in Tennessee is ready for success in classrooms, in careers, and in life.

While there is still great work to be done, there is much to celebrate.

As Tennessee gathers this weekend to inaugurate her 50th Governor, we wanted to take a moment to offer our thanks to her 49th. We are grateful for Governor Haslam’s strong work in education for every Tennessee classroom, student, teacher, parent, administrator, and future. Will you join us in thanking Governor Haslam for his service and commitment to public education?
