Bredesen Lobbies for Education Reform

Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen is lobbying hard for an education overhaul that he wants to pass at a special session that starts next week. Bredesen says it's time to change the way teachers and principals are evaluated in order to secure a bigger share of federal education funds. Tennessee is eligible to receive up to 250-million dollars in "Race to the Top" money. The special session begins January 12.
