Great Public Schools for All Students


What's New

By TEA Executive Director Carolyn Crowder

Since the last vote was cast officially passing private school vouchers, I’ve been reminding myself that while we may have lost this battle, we have not lost the war. 


By TEA President Beth Brown

During a recent meeting, a legislator declared that Tennessee’s public schools are “a system of education that makes children a profit center.”


Like the undead in the hit series Game of Thrones, dead-headed privatization ideas just keep coming and coming. And while they may break through a wall, the war is far from over. 


Legislation supporting the work of transformational community schools unanimously passed both chambers of the Tennessee Legislature and is headed to the governor’s desk for signature.
