Third annual education summit
Join Us


I hope to see you at our 2018 Education Summit on February 26 and 27, where we will come together to discuss and re-examine our education priorities in Tennessee. We have an incredible lineup of speakers, including John King from The Education Trust, Abigail Cohen from the Data Quality Campaign, as well as a presentation by The Op-Ed Project. We will also hear from Commissioner McQueen about what’s on tap for 2018 at the Department of Education. Day two we will focus on advocacy, with a visit to the Tennessee State Legislature, where we will share our priorities with our state legislators.

See you soon,

Gini Pupo-Walker
Senior Director of Education Policy & Programs
