Stop Destruction of Public Schools

To be delivered to The Tennessee State House, The Tennessee State Senate, and Governor Bill Haslam

Petition Statement

Please help save Tennessee Public Education by stopping the use of public money for private schools in Tennessee. The state constitution, Article XI, Section 12, states: “The General Assembly shall provide for the maintenance, support and eligibility standards of a system of free public schools." Several bills have been introduced in the legislature that provide for the use of public money in the form of vouchers to be paid to FOR PROFIT private schools in Tennessee. These bills will further degrade education in this state and may destroy public education.
There are currently 478 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

Proposed legislation uses public money to fund For Profit private schools. This will be detrimental to our public school system in Tennessee.
