  • A SCORE Graduate Fellow Explains His Path from Teacher to Student to Fellow

    March 14th, 2017 by

    While my time at Vanderbilt has been invaluable in providing the theoretical foundations for the next steps in my career, SCORE has helped define and refine many of the specific skills that will be used in my future. Since I joined the team as a graduate fellow last fall, SCORE has given me an opportunity to marry my newly-polished skills with practical applications. SCORE is a dynamic organization that values communication, constant improvement, and a deep focus on students. SCORE emphasizes research, innovation, accuracy, and collaboration. Underscoring this culture is a sense of urgency and belief in all students in Tennessee.

  • Parents, Learn More about TNReady – a Test That Matters

    March 9th, 2017 by

    Beginning April 17, approximately 600,000 students in Tennessee will sharpen their No. 2 pencils and take TNReady, Tennessee’s new state assessment. There’s a lot of information out there about what TNReady is, why Tennessee kids are taking it, and how you can help them prepare. If you’re a parent and you’re already juggling a half million things – soccer practice, homework, and work – you might feel overwhelmed. Don’t worry – this SCORE Sheet post is for you.

The SCORE Sheet is the online conversation on public education reform in Tennessee and is hosted by SCORE. The blog mirrors SCORE’s collaborative nature and features contributors from Tennessee and across the country including students, parents, teachers, policymakers, community groups, and members of SCORE’s team. Regardless of perspective, contributors share a common goal: that every child graduates from high school prepared for college or the workforce.

Posts on The SCORE Sheet are the opinions of the individual contributors and are not necessarily reflective of the opinions and positions of the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE).
