Policy Priorities

CHAMPIONING HIGHER STANDARDS

Tennesseans rise to any occasion (it’s how we became the Tennessee Volunteers). We know our students can and will rise to the expectations we have of them. It’s also about more than our standards.

SUPPORTING AN ALIGNED ASSESSMENT

A good test serves as an academic check-in confirming our students are on track for success and that our teachers, schools, and districts are supporting their growth.

PROTECTING
ACCOUNTABILITY

For students to succeed, there must be accountability for everyone involved in the classroom. From legislators to administrators, teachers and students, parents and community volunteers, everyone is accountable for the success, growth, and achievement of Tennessee’s classrooms.

INNOVATING
IN EDUCATION

Public schools are lighthouses in the community, in families, and in the lives of the students for whom they point the way to success. Every student in Tennessee, no matter their zip code, deserves to learn in a top-notch Tennessee public school that meets their individual needs and prepares them for their future.

SECURING ECONOMIC FREEDOM FOR ALL

As the global workforce continues to evolve, it is increasingly important to improve alignment among student instruction, industry needs, post-secondary options, and teacher preparation. Developing the necessary skills to become productive citizens and secure your own economic independence is a key measure of success for all Tennesseans.
