Students should be at the center of all decisions about public education in Tennessee. SCORE advocacy advances and supports policies that research and data indicate are critical to student success from K-12 through postsecondary completion.
Excellence For All
SCORE in 2018 invited Tennesseans to share their insights on how to build on and accelerate a decade of historic student achievement gains. The vision that emerged from those discussions is articulated in the SCORE report Excellence For All: How Tennessee Can Lift Our Students To Best In The Nation. By looking ahead to 2025, Excellence For All aims to help Tennessee lead students to another decade of progress.
Expect More, Achieve More
The Expect More, Achieve More Coalition wants every Tennessee student to graduate ready to take on the world and win. In partnership with SCORE, Expect More provides information and support to K-12 educators and parents so they can help students meet high academic expectations, develop real-world skills, and show what they know and can do on high-quality annual state assessments.
Postsecondary Readiness And Completion
SCORE works to align policies across the education continuum – from meeting grade-level expectations in K-8 to ensuring college and career readiness in high school and credentials and degree completion in postsecondary education – to ensure all students have a future with economic stability, enhanced community engagement, and a high quality of life.
