Today In The Upper Cumberland: Basic Education Plan & The Beacon Center

The Beacon Center’s Ron Shultis & Jason Edmonds discuss the Basic Education Plan

Governor Bill Lee announced this week he plans to submit a detailed education funding proposal to legislators by mid-February. Thursday, he announced the new funding formula will be called, “The Tennessee Investment in Student Achievement” – the focus on students, not systems. One nonprofit, nonpartisan organization in our state says it’s time that the education formula is changed. The Beacon Center based in Nashville calls the current system, “complicated and outdated.” Ron Shultis and Jason Edmonds from The Beacon Center discuss what the center would like to see.
