Huffman has been serving as a commissioner since 2011.

The M-SCEA President, Keith Williams, made his thoughts on the matter quite clear.

"Since his appointment...Commissioner Huffman has shown a lack of respect and contempt for Tennessee teachers, unions, and the system of public education," stated Williams.

Huffman's representative stated Wednesday Huffman is committed to improving academic achievement and doing what is best for children in Tennessee.
