  • Tennessee Educator Fellows: Leaders in the Classroom, Leaders in Policy

    February 1st, 2017 by

    Just as teachers learn new approaches to instruction to benefit students, fellows learn new approaches to share their voice on behalf of students. The Tennessee Educator Fellowship is an opportunity for educators to rise to this calling. Fellows learn about emerging education issues that are ripe for empowered teacher voice, the policymaking process, and how to communicate effectively with different stakeholders. They do all of this while doing the most important work of all—serving students in schools across Tennessee.

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).
