School choice: Spreading like a prairie fire

Thomas Landstreet

My home state of Tennessee is just one battlefield in the school reform wars. While Memphis charter schools are at the vanguard of the movement, Nashville’s local board of education just defied state law and disallowed a qualified charter application. This spring, legislation is likely to be proposed that calls for a statewide school voucher program, like those of Louisiana and Indiana. Word is, it will pass.
