Join Us! Regional Conversations on Public School Funding Begin This Week
Over the next month, we are inviting all Tennesseans to eight regional public town halls (opens in a new window) to be part of the open dialogue and discussion on creating a student-based public education funding strategy.

Each town hall will take place in person and will also be live-streamed.
We encourage all staff to join us either in person or via live stream as we hear from Tennesseans on their thoughts and hopes about public education funding.
