Tennessee gov to push $25M education savings account plan


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee on Monday unveiled his long awaited school-choice agenda, announcing a sweeping proposal that would boost the number of parents who can use education savings accounts to pay tuition at private elementary and secondary schools.

While addressing lawmakers during his first State of the State, Lee said he wants to devote $37.4 million more in the upcoming fiscal year to help increase school choice throughout Tennessee. The majority of that funding would be slated toward a new education savings account program.
