A statewide network of faith leaders has been working across Tennessee ahead of the 111th General Assembly, advocating for adequate public school funding and lifting up public education as a moral good and “a basic, core, fundamental, social-justice expression in society.”
Historic change is happening in the state capitol. A new governor and more than a quarter of the General Assembly will take their places in January as newly elected officials. Along with new lawmakers are new leaders in the state Senate and House of Representatives.
There is hope that the goals and needs of educators, students and parents across Tennessee will be addressed by the incoming General Assembly and administration.

TEA Legal has two new wins under their belt after recent rulings in favor of Tennessee teachers.
Educators statewide stand to benefit from a summary judgment issued by the Chancery Court of Maury County reinforcing teachers’ rights under the Professional Educators Collaborative Conferencing Act.
The following statement may be attributed to Beth Brown, Grundy County High School teacher and Tennessee Education Association president.
“Tennessee is in a period of significant change in leadership, which now includes the commissioner of education. As candidates for the state’s next commissioner of education are considered, it is my hope that serious consideration is given to an individual’s experience in our own Tennessee public schools.
The Tennessee Education Association Fund for Children & Public Education, the association’s political action committee, has endorsed former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean in the Tennessee Gubernatorial race.
“Karl Dean has a record of increasing education funding as mayor of Nashville and has made improving K-12 funding a centerpiece of his campaign for governor,” said TEA President Beth Brown. “Increasing the state’s per-student investment is a top priority for TEA and one of the reasons Dean has earned our endorsement.”
