NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — A task force appointed by Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has skipped over the question of whether to create a school voucher program. Instead, the panel's most spirited debate earlier this week was about how soon vouchers could begin to be offered in Tennessee.
Jerry Winters is a spokesman for the state’s largest teacher’s union, the Tennessee Teacher’s Association. He’s attended four of the task force meeting and says it’s clear the panel members have already made up their minds to recommend a voucher program.
