The 2018 Gubernatorial Forum On Education


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.

The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the goal that every student in Tennessee graduates from high school prepared for postsecondary education and the work force. SCORE was founded by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, MD, and it drives collaboration across the state on policy and practice to ensure student success. We believe that we can achieve our goals for Tennessee’s students by empowering people to lead change on behalf of students, insisting on high expectations for what students can achieve, and fostering a culture of innovation.

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.
