Back in 2014, The Beacon Center of Tennessee released “Allowing Children to Dream Big,” a booklet that gives parents all the available options to provide their children with the education that they deserve.  You can download the booklet here. In addition to showing parents the educational options they currently have, the booklet also analyzes Tennessee’s school choice options relative to other states. Unfortunately, while families who have exercised choice have had tremendous success, options for Tennessee families are still limited.
While Tennessee policymakers debate additional school choice measures such as opportunity scholarships, other states across the country are providing robust choice programs for their students.
“We hope every Tennessee family eventually has chance to give their child the quality education he or she deserves,” said Beacon Center CEO Justin Owen. “In the meantime, this booklet represents the first step at laying out those options for families, so that they can choose the right educational environment for their child.”
