A Tennessee Teacher’s Pride

Change is possible and as Tennessee schools have proven, it can be remarkable. Educator James Dittes penned an op-ed for The Tennessean expressing his pride over how the state, through embracing the Common Core, implementing better tests, and revamping teacher evaluations, has turned its schools around for the better—and attracted national attention and plaudits. He writes:

Tennessee isn’t an education backwater anymore. There is a “willingness to get better”….that Brad Jupp can sense from his office at the U.S. Department of Education. I would hope that any visitor to my classroom—or any in our district—will sense this, too.
