President Biden’s American Rescue Plan funding ‘worked,’ Memphis senator says
MEMPHIS — Tennessee Sen. Raumesh Akbari issued a statement congratulating students and educators at Memphis-Shelby County Schools for their achievement on the spring TCAP test.
Her full statement:
“Our students and teachers have emerged from the challenges of the pandemic with an incredible academic performance.
“This doesn’t happen by accident! Memphis-Shelby County Schools are trending up because we have tireless and dedicated educators, support staff and district leadership.
“What is also clear is that resources make a huge difference in our student’s classrooms. President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, which invested a half billion dollars in our schools, worked to keep students learning and growing against the odds.
“With the foundation Memphis-Shelby County Schools established this year, the direction we are headed is good for our students and great for our community.”
