School Voucher "Like" Bill to become Law | Tennessee schools,Murfreesboro,Rutherford County Schools

Gov. Bill Lee has signed a bill diverting tax dollars to private education.

The new law will allow participating families to receive debit cards worth up to $7,300 in state education money each year.

The freshman governor navigated a bumpy legislative path to score his most prominent policy win yet with the voucher-like proposal.

State Representative Dawn White of Murfreesboro stated...

Nationally, five states have passed laws allowing some sort of education savings accounts: Arizona, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Nevada. The Nevada Supreme Court later ruled the state could not use school dollars to fund the accounts.
