Stop Destruction of Public Schools

Please help save Tennessee Public Education by stopping the use of public money for private schools in Tennessee. The state constitution, Article XI, Section 12, states: “The General Assembly shall provide for the maintenance, support and eligibility standards of a system of free public schools." Several bills have been introduced in the legislature that provide for the use of public money in the form of vouchers to be paid to FOR PROFIT private schools in Tennessee. These bills will further degrade education in this state and may destroy public education.

Why is this important?

Proposed legislation uses public money to fund For Profit private schools. This will be detrimental to our public school system in Tennessee.
