Senator Roy Herron at SETPAC
Last Friday, state Sen. Roy Herron, a Democrat from Dresden who is running for governor, spoke to the Southeast Tennessee Political Action Committee. I was unable to cover the event, but Judy Frank was there, and has this report at Chattanoogan.com.
If politicians and school officials here don't stop trying to economize by using outdated mid-20th Century approaches to educating children, Sen. Herron warned, there's no way those young people can acquire the strong math and science skills they will need to succeed in the highly competitive 21st Century economy.
