The 2020-21 academic year is extraordinary in so many ways. Since March 2020, TEA's advocacy has been focused on the health, safety and well-being of Tennessee's students and educators.
Educators need support, encouragement and flexibility during this time, not high-stakes standardized testing and punitive evaluations. That's why we're asking you to petition your local school board to sign a resolution to suspend state standardized testing and teacher evaluations for the 2020-21 academic year.
Let us focus on students' needs!
