The school boards for Davidson and Shelby counties said today that they are considering legal action against Gov. Bill Lee’s voucher proposal, the Nashville Post reports. The boards said they considered the legislation, which has passed both House and Senate, to be unconstitutional because it targets only certain counties. Other potential legal action looms because of a provision that excludes children of undocumented immigrants from participating, since the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that states must educate students regardless of immigration status.
