NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A proposal that would let parents move a child
from a failing public school in Tennessee to a private school with
funding from the state has failed this year — for the third consecutive
Tennessee General Assembly session.
House sponsor Bill Dunn withdrew the school voucher proposal, or “opportunity scholarship,” from the House Finance subcommittee on Tuesday and said he will likely try again next year.
“The votes just aren’t there,” said Dunn, R-Knoxville. (link)
