STUDENT-BASED PUBLIC EDUCATION FUNDING STRATEGY
STUDENT-BASED PUBLIC EDUCATION FUNDING STRATEGY:
Friend or foe to physical education and the Tom Cronan Act for Elementary Physical Education?
The TN DOE has informed us that this process of looking at funding formula WILL NOT affect any existing laws or requirements around physical education. These requirements will stay in place and there is no interest in the department or administration in changing the requirements of the Tom Cronan Act. GOOD NEWS!
HOWEVER, we have been encouraged to provide public comment and feedback (about the importance and value of physical education) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Who do you know that would be willing to speak to the value of physical education in Tennessee schools? What does it mean to parents? What does it mean to students? Send them to this link, please.
Remember we will always be informing leaders at every level about the health benefits of physical education: the one subject area that impacts the social, emotional, mental and physical health of a child.
Thank you for all that you do for Tennessee children,
