SCORE’s annual State Of Education In Tennessee report monitors the state’s progress in improving student outcomes, delineates work that has contributed to achievement gains, and provides recommendations to the state to ensure we continue to prepare all students for success in college and career. The comprehensive report is grounded in extensive research and feedback from educators, higher education faculty, the Tennessee Department of Education, the State Board of Education, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, business and philanthropic partners, and other stakeholders.
2023 State Of Education In Tennessee
“For more than a decade, Tennessee has been on a journey to improve public education and workforce opportunities for all Tennesseans. Working together, we have made significant progress. However, as we head into 2023, our journey continues to improve K-12 and higher education outcomes and build stronger bridges between our education system and our state’s workforce. Tennessee’s economy is thriving, with businesses growing and job opportunities coming to our state daily, but many Tennesseans still lack the skills, education, and training required to turn these opportunities into careers.”
– Senator Bill Frist and David Mansouri
