(AP) -- A Nashville think tank is hosting a discussion about education reform between Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Monday's event is hosted by the State Collaborative on Reforming Education, or SCORE, which was founded by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and is run by former state Sen. Jamie Woodson.
The discussion comes as Tennessee lawmakers prepare to decide over proposals to create a state-wide charter authorizer and a school voucher program. Also expected is legislation to create a "parent trigger," which would empower families with options By to turn around a failing school, such as converting it to a charter school.
Haslam has been noncommittal about which proposals he will take a lead on during this year's legislative session.
