Today, TennesseeCAN released the 2017 Tennessee Policy Report Card, which analyzes 25 education policies that are critical levers for Tennessee to boost student success and develop high quality educators.
Serving as a barometer on state policy efforts that have contributed to the environment of academic success in Tennessee, this report outlines and reflects on the work legislators and state agencies have done to support the instruction of teachers and school leaders.
“This report is intended to serve as a guide to policymakers about strategies and approaches that provide great teachers, great schools, and a high quality education to every student across the state,” said Charlie Bufalino, TennesseeCAN Director of Policy and Strategy. “These policies are key pieces of the puzzle to ensure students and teachers have the resources and tools to succeed, and there are many opportunities presented here to improve and expand policies that will help build on our state’s progress.”
Further, in 2018, Tennesseans will select a new governor, and TennesseeCAN believes it is crucial for continued progress that he or she maintains a strong commitment to education reform as key for Tennessee’s future prosperity.
