Today In The Upper Cumberland: Basic Education Plan With Kurt Dronebarger & Kristy Brown

This week, Kurt Dronebarger and Kristy Brown discuss the Basic Education Plan.

By next week, there could be a new funding formula for public schools in the state of Tennessee. Following forums throughout the Fall, and following a one week public comment period, state officials say they are ready to unveil a plan to replace the Basic Education Plan, which has served public schools in the state for better than 30 years. There is concern among educators about what exactly the new plan will look like. Will the state of Tennessee fully fund education in a way that educators believe has not happened under the Basic Education Plan? White County Schools’ Director of Schools Kurt Dronebarger, and Jackson County Director of Schools Kristy Brown have not only watched – they’ve participated in the process.
