Silencing Public School Advocates

From Zack Barnes at the Nashville Ledger:

In Barnes’ weekly column on state politics, he references legislation that has been filed that would allow County Commissions to veto School Board spending on lobbyists.

“This legislation would give county commissions unprecedented authority over school board budgets,” explains Andy Spears, a local education consultant. “In districts that hire in-house lobbyists, the commission would theoretically have staffing authority over that position.”

This would change the way Tennessee does its school business, and not in a good way.
