NASHVILLE, TN (WLAF) – Tennesseans for Student Success is a statewide network of teachers, parents, community leaders, and volunteers who are dedicated to supporting Tennessee’s students and their futures.
Dennis Powers has served as state representative since 2010
We believe every student in Tennessee should have an equal opportunity for success. We work continuously for rigorous academic standards, an assessment aligned to those standards, accountability for everyone involved in the classroom, more choices in public education, and policies that ensure economic independence so that students are better prepared for college, career, and life.
To remain true to this commitment, in 2016, we launched an aggressive air, ground, and data strategy to champion the people and policies that support student success and continue this work to this day. Since then, we partnered with the Tennessee General Assembly as they made student success one of their top priorities. Through traditional outreach, digital engagement, grassroots advocacy, and access to information like the Tennessee SuccessCard, we look forward to continuing to work to make sure every student – whether in our classrooms today or in the workforce tomorrow – has every opportunity to succeed.
