The Tennessean , 12/8/22
For the better part of two decades, Tennessee has been on a journey to significantly improve public education and workforce opportunities for all Tennesseans. And by working together, we have made significant progress, moving from the back of the pack to one of the most improved and innovative states in the country on multiple K-12 and higher education measures.   However, as we emerge from the global pandemic and head into 2023, it is clear we still have much more work to do if we are to build a strong bridge between our education and workforce systems and truly create a lifetime of opportunity for all Tennesseans.
