In Tennessee, we have laid a firm foundation for our students’ future by raising standards to a more rigorous level that will prepare them for college and careers; establishing fully aligned assessments to ensure all of our students are developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills; and by using evaluation and accountability systems based on multiple factors. The new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), builds on this work by reaffirming the importance of standards, assessment, and accountability and through empowering states to make decisions for our students.
