TQEEPAC is the political arm of Tennesseans for Quality Early Education (TQEE). We support state legislators for office who stand up for policies and investments that promote high quality early education birth through third grade.
Our policy priorities include increasing access to high quality, affordable child care, investing in early grades teachers, expanding high quality PreK, and supporting parent engagement through evidence based home visiting programs, among others. A full description of our policy priorities may be found on TQEE’s website.
Tennessee’s Education Foundation Needs Repair
A strong early education foundation, birth through 3rd grade, is the key to academic achievement, workforce success, and economic prosperity. That’s why we’re deeply concerned that 2/3rds of Tennessee’s third graders are not proficient in reading and math. TQEE is a bipartisan coalition of Tennesseans fighting to remedy that.
