U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and Tennessee Governor Bill Lee hosted a roundtable discussion on April 1 in Nashville, TN with more than 30 families, educators, stakeholders and elected officials to discuss the recently announced Education Freedom Scholarships policy proposal. The roundtable answered questions on the plan and discussed how these scholarships, which could total more than $100 million for Tennessee students, could be used to expand students' access to dual enrollment courses, apprenticeship programs, transportation to an out of district public school, or other education opportunities.
