Casting Our Vision
The Tennessee Educational Equity Coalition presents, Casting Our Vision, a four-part series with opportunities to hear from national, state, and local leaders on innovative practices that help achieve equity in schools. Each event is a deep-dive into one of the Coalition’s four policy priorities: (1) Excellent Teachers and Leaders, (2) Strong Accountability, (3) Appropriate and Equitable Resources, and (4) Successful Outcomes in Postsecondary Access and Completion. We hope you can join us as we cast our vision for change in Tennessee.
