Dr. Candice McQueen

Tennessee Department of Education
Commissioner of Education
Commissioner of Education
Dr. Candice McQueen was sworn in as Tennessee’s commissioner of education in January 2015. McQueen led a statewide effort to create a new strategic plan and vision for our schools called Tennessee Succeeds focused on increasing postsecondary and career readiness for all of Tennessee’s 1 million students. In summer 2017, Tennessee‘s new state plan was approved under the Every Student Succeeds Act, which builds on the work started under Tennessee Succeeds. Some of the hallmarks of the plan include a focus on ensuring Ready Graduates by supporting more early college coursework and industry certification attainment, a renewed accountability and support focus on improving achievement and growth for all students, and elevating a continuum of interventions for the state’s lowest performing schools.
