Sign The Early Education Petition

Tennessee's educational foundation needs repair.

The first 8 years of a child's life provide the bedrock on which all future learning is built, yet by 3rd grade, the majority of our students are not proficient in reading or math.

We must prioritize early education, with effective solutions like:

  • High quality affordable childcare
  • Investing in our teachers
  • Providing excellent pre-k programs

Sign our Petition Today to support a strong foundation for Tennessee's future.
