FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

STATEMENT ON NEWLY APPOINTED COMMISSIONER OF EDUCATION PENNY SCHWINN

 

Education is the key to our economy. Professional Educators of Tennessee looks forward to continued collaboration with the Lee administration to strengthen our state’s education system. Teachers must feel valued and students must be the priority. We have met with Penny Schwinn and look forward to getting to know her better and to collaborate together on public education. Schwinn shares Governor-elect Bill Lee’s commitment to support teachers, reduce our testing burden, and improve the working environment, including more competitive compensation. We can change the trajectory of education for children and families when we support quality education and those on the frontlines. It will take all of us together, and we need Commissioner Schwinn to be successful in her new role.

We would also like to thank Lyle Ailshie for serving as interim Commissioner and hope that he will continue serving the state at the Department of Education.
