Letter: No good reason to support Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s school voucher plan

Published by

This proposal creates an entitlement for the wealthy. It is a fact (based on decades of research) that 70% to 80% of parents who apply for vouchers were always planning to send their children to private schools! Even worse, this proposal is fiscally irresponsible. About 155,000 Tennessee students are enrolled in private schools. If you do the math, you are quickly approaching a billion dollars in new expenditures each year.
