Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative – District 67

I am hoping, during your shopping time over the next few days, you will purchase one, two or half a dozen and make these available to a group of our senior “saints.” «Read the rest of this article»

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam announces Academic Standards Review Website

 

Encourages public input on state standards

Tennessee State Representative - House District 67Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam today unveiled a website, https://apps.tn.gov/tcas/ , where Tennesseans can review and comment on the state’s current K-12 academic standards.

Academic standards set grade-specific goals that define what students are expected to know and be able to do by the end of a given grade or course.

There are more than 1,100 for English language arts (ELA) and more than 900 for mathematics in Tennessee.

“There has been considerable concern about Common Core State Standards, currently in place state-wide,” said Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville). “The standards do offer some advantages for students and our public education system, but the quick roll-out did not, among other issues, allow time for educators, students and parents to understand how they work.” «Read the rest of this article»

Note from Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts

 

Election 2014Dear Friends,

Recent election seasons have seen a rising number of candidates and their supporters, including me and mine, standing at the Montgomery County Veterans Plaza during early voting, waving signs at passers-by.

The new configuration of the parking lot however, makes this practice, in my opinion, a serious safety hazard and greatly slows entry to the Plaza for citizens arriving to vote, pay their taxes, renew their license tags, visit our wonderful library or other important reasons to visit the offices located there. «Read the rest of this article»
