Casting Our Vision

The Ten­nessee Edu­ca­tion­al Equi­ty Coali­tion presents, Cast­ing Our Vision, a dis­cus­sion 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 Sys­tems, (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.

Increasing Postsecondary Opportunities for Incarcerated Tennesseans

Event Descrip­tion:  Today, near­ly 60,000 peo­ple are impris­oned in local, state or fed­er­al pris­ons across Ten­nessee. Their edu­ca­tion­al attain­ment is stag­ger­ing with only 30 per­cent of pris­on­ers obtain­ing a high school diplo­ma nation­wide and only 22 per­cent have a post­sec­ondary cre­den­tial. Why should Ten­nesseans care about post­sec­ondary oppor­tu­ni­ties for the incar­cer­at­ed? Join the Ten­nessee Edu­ca­tion­al Equi­ty Coali­tion as we facil­i­tate a con­ver­sa­tion about the state of post­sec­ondary oppor­tu­ni­ties for the incar­cer­at­ed in Ten­nessee.
