Conexión Américas is pleased to invest in the Tennessee NAACP’s statewide efforts to share information about the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
The TN NAACP proposes to leverage their expertise and state-wide presence in order to engage their membership, as well as parents, community leaders, and clergy in advocating for strong accountability in the ESSA, and appropriate and equitable resources for students in every district.
The TN NAACP will hold a series of public events, town-halls, community meetings, forums, and media events across the state. These public events will be complimented by training sessions across the state for chapter education leaders, as well as parents, and community leaders in advocacy around ESSA implementation.
