The first education news story published at Tennessee Education Report went live 10 years ago.
Since that time, there have been hundreds of stories.
Issues like TNReady’s online testing failure, teacher compensation, the aggressive advance of charter schools, the failures of the Achievement School District – and so many more have been covered here.
Since 2019, the drive to privatize Tennessee’s public schools has grown more intense.
We now have a voucher program in Memphis and Nashville and Gov. Lee and his legislative allies are seeking to expand it.
Hillsdale College has their sites set on opening as many as 50 charter schools in the state – and has five applications (Madison, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford) active right now.
We have a new school funding formula – TISA – and this is the first year it will impact districts.
Oh, and there’s a new third grade retention law that will be impacting students and schools this year.
Tennessee Education Report has covered it all.
