Individuals

TENNESSEANS FOR QUALITY EARLY EDUCATION is a bipartisan coalition of business, law enforcement, faith, education, civic organizations and individuals committed to quality early childhood education as an essential foundation and urgent priority for a thriving Tennessee.

Tennessee citizens support quality early education because we know investment in quality early childhood education results in:

  • A stronger, more wholesome community
  • Individual citizens who can contribute more to society
  • Higher wages and more spending to drive our economy
  • Better jobs and more tax revenue to improve our quality of life

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