This week is shaping up to be huge for education policy in Tennessee. Tomorrow, the TNReady testing window opens — while many will take pencil and paper tests, there will be significant numbers of students taking online TNReady. Our current Commissioner of Education is not quite sure how that will go.
If you’re an educator, student, or parent and you get wind of TNReady trouble this week, let me know ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course, during this busy week for our schools and teachers, legislators have planned key votes on voucher legislation. Governor Bill Lee’s “education savings account” voucher scheme will be voted on in the House and Senate Finance Committees on Tuesday. That’s the final step in both bodies before the bill hits the floor, likely the week of April 22nd.
A group of parents and teachers is planning a series of events tomorrow in order to protest the movement on vouchers.
Meanwhile, if you have any great voucher, charter, or TNReady memes, send them my way at email@example.com
