NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State lawmakers trying to wrap up the General Assembly this month are hoping to push through two key education proposals.
One measure would create a state panel to authorize charter schools for five Tennessee counties and the other seeks to clear the way for cities to begin forming municipal school systems.
The session began with several proposals aimed at continuing education reform in Tennessee. They included Gov. Bill Haslam's initiative to create a school voucher program and a so-called parent trigger measure that would allow parents to decide the fate of a struggling school.
Both of those proposals have failed this session.
