Greeneville BOE unanimously votes to reject proposed voucher program
The Greeneville Board of Education unanimously voted Tuesday to oppose Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s proposed expanded school voucher program. The resolution passed without any votes against it. Lee proposed the program Nov. 28. If approved, the legislation would use tax money to cover a large portion of tuition to any private school in the state. If passed by lawmakers, the program would award 20,000 scholarships to qualifying families in the 2024-25 school year. The year after that, the voucher program would become universal for all Tennessee students.
