Inside TNSuccess

Weekly Update – December 11, 2017

It’s a mix. An equation. A balance of the right policies, priorities, and people in place to make certain every student in Tennessee has an opportunity to succeed.

You might have seen this map on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. It’s from the Stanford Education Data Archive, and it shows the average achievement growth in school districts across the country. In no surprise, Tennessee is a bright spot of success. This map is another indicator that our classrooms are on the right track for success.

Because we are on the right track, there’s an even greater need to make sure we keep working for student success. Whether that’s continuing to push for student-centered reforms in the General Assembly, supporting current policies that lead to student success, informing Tennessee’s voters of the issues that could roll back Tennessee’s historic gains, or encouraging all those who have a place in our classrooms to support elected officials who champion success, we can’t let up now.

The Second Session of the 110th General Assembly is right around the corner. As we prepare for another legislative session, we would love to have you partner with us. You can follow us on social media, help spread the message of student success to your networks, or drop us a note to come to Nashville to visit your elected officials. We appreciate all you do for Tennessee’s students.

Stay tuned.
