Under the leadership of the TSBA President, Renea Jones-Rogers, the Tennessee School Boards Association launched a statewide campaign to increase awareness of the importance of local control of public schools.
The campaign, Local Schools, Local Decisions, will place emphasis on the importance of keeping public education from becoming a tool of any single group or person. The campaign will also focus on maintaining the collective belief that public education exists to serve all people equally. Historically, communities have supported local, lay school boards to make certain that local schools serve the community effectively and equally.
