This reversal allows for further court proceedings to challenge the curriculum’s compliance with state laws regarding educational standards.

The appellate court has notably reinstated the claim regarding the alleged use of Common Core-aligned instructional materials, deemed non-compliant with Tennessee’s educational statutes.


This decision underscores the importance of adhering to state laws designed to maintain the integrity of educational content and the rights of parents to influence their children’s education.

Parents’ Choice Tennessee, representing over 1,400 stakeholders, including parents and grandparents from Williamson County and beyond, continues to advocate for educational content that aligns with community values and statutory requirements.

This case does not just aNect those directly involved but also sets a precedent that could influence educational practices throughout Tennessee. As the case returns to the lower courts, Parents’ Choice Tennessee and the involved families look forward to a thorough review of the curriculum under the guidelines set forth by state law.
