Belmont University, 2018

Tennessee voters think education is one of the most important issues the next governor will face and this year’s election comes at a critical time in the statewide efforts to improve the academic performance of students in Tennessee’s public schools.

To highlight the importance of education in the state, and in partnership with Belmont University, The USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee, and NewsChannel 5, SCORE hosted the 2018 Gubernatorial Forum on Education. If you missed the forum on January 23, you still can watch the hour-long forum to hear from gubernatorial candidates specifically about their visions for education.
