Letter rom Senator Bill Frist and Jamie Woodson
February 5, 2013Dear Fellow Tennesseans,
 Over the last several years, Tennessee has become a na-tional leader in education reorm by enacting bold policiesto ensure that all students graduate rom high school pre-pared or college and the workorce. Beginning in 2011,wide scale implementation o those policy commitmentsbegan. This made the last year Tennessee’s opportunityto prove whether it would be able to ensure that the poli-cies we have passed – rom raising academic standards toevaluating principals and teachers in new ways – wouldlead to positive impacts or our students. The hard worko a broad range o stakeholders has helped Tennessee’sstudents make the most academic progress in the state’shistory. While Tennessee has shown that it was up to thisreorm challenge, much work remains to acceleratethese improvements and ensure that all our stu-dents are graduating with the skills they needto compete in the global economy.Since the State Collaborative on Re-orming Education (SCORE) wasounded, we have been com-mitted to ensuring that ev-ery student in Tennes-see graduates highschool preparedor collegeand thework-orce. As the state’s work has shited rom changing policyconditions to ensuring those policies are implementedwith delity, it is crucial that we understand the successesand challenges that we have aced in helping districts andschools make our policy goals a reality. The 2012-13 Stateo Education in Tennessee report that ollows will provideyou with an overview o the academic gains the state hasmade, update you on the work that has contributed to theimprovements students have experienced, provide exten-sive state and district data, and highlight education priori-ties or Tennessee in 2013. While we have made signicantstrides in improving achievement outcomes or students,ar too many o our students remain ill-prepared or lieater high school. There is much more to be done, and wemust sustain the important work taking place now.As you will see, the priorities or 2013 ocus on the ac-tions we believe must be taken to ensure that Tennesseecontinues its work to become the astest improving statein the country. These priorities are based on the notionthat in order to eectively implement reorms, educatorsneed the right supports and resources. All o us—parents,educators, policymakers, business leaders, and commu-nity members—have a unique role to play in supportingeducators and sustaining the reorms that have been putin place.Whether we succeed or ail in this work over the next ewyears will have signicant implications in the lives o thenext generation o Tennesseans. We have already proventhat we can rise to signicant challenges as a state andovercome them to improve outcomes or students. As thelink between producing an educated workorce and creat-ing jobs remains o critical importance, it is imperative thatwe learn rom our successes and challenges to continueon our pathway o improvement.With warmest regards,
