Tennessee Education Savings Account Pilot Program Approved

Members of the House also approved the Tennessee Education Savings Account Pilot Program this year.

A small part of a much larger plan to build upon our recent improvements in education, House Bill 939 gives some of our poorest children a fighting chance at a high-quality education. The pilot is capped at 15,000 students and also only applies to Davidson and Shelby Counties.

Education is the cornerstone in the foundation of our future leaders, and maintaining the status quo is no longer acceptable; the combination of investment and innovation are necessary if we are truly going to prepare our next generation of leaders for successful futures.

We must continue to pursue education reform until we change our state’s national ranking from the bottom third to the top third.
