    July 11th, 2016 by

    A report on formative assessment practice in classrooms recently released by Education First focuses on three different urban districts—Austin Independent School District (AISD), Denver Public Schools (DPS), and Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS). Several important findings in the report have implications for Tennessee, particularly related to the 2015-16 State of Education in Tennessee recommendations to implement rigorous, aligned assessments that produce the best data possible and to empower teachers to ensure the best outcomes for students.

  • Elevating and Accelerating Teacher Influence in Tennessee

    July 6th, 2016 by

    Peter Tang leads SCORE’s Tennessee Educator Fellowship, a program that helps elevate teacher voice in Tennessee. This program’s impact is far-reaching, as teachers from across the state learn tools to impact and continue to influence policy conversation. This year, the program was expanded, almost doubling in size. The SCORE Sheet asked Peter to tell us more about the Fellowship’s work, what it has accomplished and where it’s headed. Here are his thoughts and insights.

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).
