Did you know only 1/3 of children in Tennessee Schools can read at grade level?
Guess what? During the mismanagement of the pandemic by TN leaders, that number got even worse. It’s unacceptable to put TN Kids last to please the status quo and teachers unions.
In this interview, Shaka Mitchell of the American Federation for Children discusses school choice in TN. He also reveals who is trying to stop educational choice in our state and what you can do to take action.
If you care about your kids, grandkids or TN’s future, you need to watch this…
