A new school year is under way for most school districts across the state.
The start of a new year always brings with it a sense of a new beginning.
Students have a clean slate, teachers welcome new students in their classrooms and we all have the opportunity to renew our commitment to public education in Tennessee.
The State Department of Education has been touting exciting gains in TCAP scores all across the state in recent weeks.
Those scores are a direct result of the hard work of our teachers and students.
