Education Town Hall Coming November 3rd
Recently Governor Bill Lee launched a new initiative in education in Tennessee he calls a “student based approach” to education. Lee stated on October 8th that the student investment strategy he is seeking would prioritize students over systems and encourage parents to get engaged in their children’s education. Now Tennesseans will get their chance to become involved as the state of Tennessee Department of Education announced on Thursday there will be eight regional public town halls in the state over the next 5 weeks that will discuss the Governor’s new education strategy and also offer discussion from citizens and parents. The department of education says that all Tennesseans are welcome to attend these town halls, whether they be a teacher, parent, grandparent, business owner or a member of the general public. The town hall for this region will be at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville on Wednesday, November 3rd at 5:30pm. You need to RSVP Facebook event page. That event will also be livestreamed. Any questions or comments can be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
