Memphis, Tennessee – Campaign for School Equity’s executive director Mendell Grinter released the following statement in response to Dr. Sharon Griffin stepping down from her role as Superintendent of the state Achievement School District.
“We know the work of transforming low-performing schools across the state is urgent, needed, but not without challenges. Campaign for School Equity is sad to see Dr. Sharon Griffin leave her post, knowing her experience and commitment towards transforming our schools, and especially her commitment to ensuring the community was part of the process.
We wish Dr. Griffin well in her next endeavor and look forward to continuing our support of the Tennessee Department of Education (TNDOE) efforts to improve students’ performance, especially in our Priority schools.
