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.
Classroom To Career
Classroom To Career is a SCORE initiative working to create an education system in Tennessee that supports students from the day they enter the kindergarten classroom until the day they start their careers. The advocacy project provides information and support to K-12 educators, parents, and business leaders so we can work together to ensure our kids are ready to excel in school, college, career, and life!
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.
Urgency For Literacy
SCORE has helped facilitate work by districts in the Leading Innovation for Tennessee Education (LIFT) network to improve literacy outcomes in the early grades. This project has focused on instruction that employs the simple view of reading and high-quality instructional materials paired with technical assistance for teachers.
