SUCCESS THROUGH ACCOUNTABILITY
Evaluating legislators openly and honestly helps voters better assess how local officials are working to improve the future of Tennessee’s one million students. The SuccessCard offers clear and concise information on how members of the General Assembly voted to support the policies that have led to Tennessee twice becoming the fastest improving state in the nation. Tennessee made these historic gains by establishing rigorous academic standards, an assessment aligned to those standards, accountability for everyone involved in student success, public choices in education, innovation, and keeping economic opportunity for all students in mind. Supporting these legislative priorities is a clear signal that public education is a top priority for the Tennessee General Assembly. Now more than ever, we must do more to support and advance these foundational priorities for Tennessee’s students and must continue to fight for student success.

The SuccessCard is updated at the end of each legislative session. It serves as a helpful tool recognizing Tennessee’s elected officials for their commitment to ensuring all students have an opportunity to succeed in college, career, and life.
