More than a dozen state lawmakers, including 47th District Rep. Judd Matheny, sent a letter to Gov. Haslam demanding the resignation of Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman.
In a four-page letter, the bi-partisan group outlines why they want Huffman to step down. It includes accusations of misguided judgment, dereliction of duty and failing to uphold state law following problems with the release of TCAP scores.
In a statement, Gov. Haslam called the letter a political stunt and said “there is a more productive way to discuss something so significant than through a letter by a small group of legislators more interested in trying to get headlines than substance.”
