Huffman will be departing the administration to move into the private sector.
“Improving education in Tennessee has been a top priority for our administration, and having someone of Kevin's caliber to lead the charge during this time of significant progress has made a difference,” Haslam said.
My Comment: I have been very impressed with the improvement in education in Tennessee under Kevin Huffman. I hope Governor Haslam can quickly find a person of quality who has a passion for educational excellence and is a supporter of school choice to replace him.
