About The Mayors Coalition

The TQEE Mayors Coalition is a bi-partisan coalition of city and county mayors from across Tennessee who pledge to be advocates for policies and practices that advance high quality early education in the state.

We support the vision that by 2025, at least seventy-five percent of Tennessee’s 3rd graders will be proficient in reading and math, thereby establishing a solid foundation for future academic achievement, employability, and success in life.

As members of the coalition, we pledge to be advocates for policies and practices that advance this vision for our children and our state.
