Press Release: Fitzhugh Statement on Huffman Departure
Nashville, TN: House Democratic Leader Craig Fitzhugh (D-Ripley) released the following statement on the impending departure of Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman:
"In 2010 Democrats and Republicans passed Race to the Top. We had buy-in from teachers, parents, students and other stakeholders setting us on a path for real improvements in public education. While the hard work of our teachers has certainly produced some positive results, these outcomes would be much greater without the culture of hostility and mistrust created by the Department of Education.
