We wanted to make sure you saw this article about the decline of remedial classes in Tennessee’s colleges. There’s a lot of good information here, but we’re most excited to see that more and more Tennessee’s kids are ready for their next steps. It’s why we do what we do – supporting teachers and students to make sure every student in Tennessee has an opportunity to succeed. There’s more work to be done, but we enjoy celebrating the gains made in our classrooms. Well done!
