Tennessee Education Commissioner Penny Schwinn reflected on the challenges students and educators face this school year during a speech at The Rotary Club of Lebanon on Tuesday. 

Schwinn's appearance in Lebanon came a day before lawmakers are set to question the state's top education official about the department's summer learning programs and student achievement amid the pandemic during the House Education Committee's summer study sessions this week.
