At School Year’s End, Haslam and Huffman Optimistic But Not Ready To Declare Victory

When Bill Haslam was running for governor of Tennessee  in 2010, a confidant told him that, should he win, his job would be to “stand in the doorway making certain [Tennesseans] don’t retreat” from educational change, the governor recounted in Nashville Monday.

Haslam demonstrated that he takes that job seriously in Monday’s keynote speech at the Education Writers Association conference at Vanderbilt University. The conference is a gathering of education reporters and advocates across the country and is being hosted by Vanderbilt University this year.
