NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Education Association says the latest State Report Card shows continued success.
TEA president Gera Summerford, a high school math teacher in Sevier County, said in a statement Monday that the recent figures are encouraging during a year of economic hardship for both families and schools.
According to the results, 25 schools improved to the point of being removed from the high priority list and another 54 schools on the list improved.
The TEA says it is the state's largest professional organization, representing more than 52,000 elementary and secondary teachers, school administrators, education support professionals, higher education faculty and students preparing to become teachers.
