The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) today released the 2015-16 State of Education in Tennessee report and a list of five priorities that Tennessee should pursue in 2016 to sustain and accelerate recent student achievement gains. The nonprofit, nonpartisan education research and advocacy group compiles the state’s comprehensive annual report that examines recent successes and opportunities for improvement in K-12 education. The report outlines an agenda for the new year to help Tennessee achieve the goals of remaining among the fastest improving states for student achievement, closing achievement gaps for historically underserved students, and preparing all students for postsecondary education and the workforce.

“To accomplish these bold goals, SCORE’s work will be guided by strategic priorities that will drive collaboration in Tennessee on policy and practice,” said Jamie Woodson, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SCORE. “Our priorities are to advocate for critical policies that advance student success, convene and support state and local partners around a shared student-focused agenda, promote the implementation of promising practices that work, and foster and support strong networks of education leaders, from teachers to superintendents. This is the time to lean in to the work, a commitment that is shared by Senator Frist, our board, and our executive leadership team.” To help the organization better align its leadership to its strategic priorities, and to ensure a sustainable organization for the future, Frist and Woodson also announced roles for SCORE’s executive leadership team.
