Brooks backs off school vouchers
A Tennessee lawmaker who has been pushing for a school voucher plan in Tennessee has had a change of heart. Republican Rep. Harry Brooks of Knoxville has taken steps to follow through on a promise not to pursue school voucher legislation this year. Proponents of school vouchers and charter schools want the state to siphon off funding from public schools and shift it to funding for private schools. Vouchers allow public school children to use taxpayer money to go to private schools. Supporters say vouchers give parents choices. Opponents point out that vouchers will drain funding from public schools.
