TSS Statement on Day on the Hill 2020

NASHVILLE – Today, Tennesseans for Student Success held our third annual Day on the Hill at the Tennessee State Capitol. Around 65 educators, students, and advocates with diverse backgrounds from around the state gathered to meet with legislators and learn about the work they are doing to improve student achievement. Advocates were able to hear from legislators as well as the Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett and the Tennessee Department of Education.

Please see the following statement from our President and CEO Adam Lister:

“Today’s annual Day on the Hill helped to support success for Tennessee’s students by demonstrating for legislators a commitment from Tennesseans to be a voice, loud and clear, for better public schools. This year’s event was our largest yet. It represented a sustained interest in the policies we support and a growing commitment for stakeholders at every level to engage on the frontlines and in the legislative process. Ensuring every student, no matter their zip code, has an equal opportunity to receive a high-quality education that prepares them for their future is critical for the long-term success of the future generation.”
