“Research consistently shows that positive conditions and culture in a school building are critical to improving student outcomes. The TELL Tennessee survey provides leaders at all levels with valuable information needed to ensure teacher and student success.”
Kevin Huffman
Commissioner, Tennessee Department of Education

“TELL Tennessee provides an incredible opportunity and a powerful tool for teachers and other licensed professionals to share their perceptions of the teaching and learning conditions in their schools. The data generated will prove invaluable to individual schools, school districts and state-level policymakers.  More than 77% of Tennessee teachers participated in 2011, and I hope we’ll see an even greater response this year. I urge every teacher to complete the survey and TELL Tennessee what's happening in your school. When you participate, we can all benefit from the results.”
