On February 6th, Governor Lee delivered his annual State of the State address, unveiled his priorities for the year, and gave his recommendations for the 2023 – 2024 budget. Tennessee’s budget is one of the most significant pieces of public policy our governor and the Tennessee General Assembly tackle each year. Join us and Mandy Spears Pellegrin, Deputy Director of The Sycamore Institute, to reflect on Governor Lee’s budget and the important education implications it has for our students and schools communities. Advocates will leave this session with resources and a better understanding of Tennessee’s budget content, how the budget process works, and how the budget will impact our education system this upcoming year.
