On October 8, 2012 the Tennessee State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) awarded the SCORE Prize. The Hunt Institute is proud to be part of the selection process for the SCORE Prize which annually provides $10,000 to the elementary, middle, and high school and $25,000 to one district in Tennessee that have most dramatically improved student achievement.
“From strong leadership and effective teaching to interventions and student tracking, the success can be seen in the data,” said TN SCORE President and Chief Executive Officer Jamie Woodson in an op-ed appearing in The Tennessean. As an example, Woodson highlighted that the middle school winner had “…narrowed the achievement gap between black and white students by 11.4 percentage points in reading and 16.2 percentage points in math between 2010 and 2012 while showing significant growth for all students in those subjects.”
