Lawmakers fail to negotiate stipulations, leading to demise of school voucher bill

Governor Bill Lee’s proposed school voucher bill is dead after lawmakers failed to negotiate stipulations. Opponents feared it would take money away from public schools, while supporters believed it would provide valuable options for families to choose private education. Despite progress, the bill did not have a pathway in this legislative session. Governor Lee expressed disappointment for families who will have to wait for education choice, emphasizing the need for every Tennessee student to succeed. Critics viewed the bill as poorly written with no accountability and believed it favored students already in private schools.
