TN politics: Group launches campaign to oppose school choice … – Tennessean

Statewide Organizing for Community Empowerment, known as SOCM, has launched a new statewide campaign, dubbed Public School Strong, to advocate against expanding the state’s Education Savings Account voucher program, and against any rejection of federal funding for K-12 schools.

SOCM has organized groups in 10 counties to attend local school board meetings to become familiar with local funding needs and is working to engage in more counties. 

“It’s really frightening for folks that more public money is going to be directed out of our local school districts,” SOCM Executive Director Austin Sauerbrei told The Tennessean. “We’re really interested in making sure that we have a legislature that’s actually fighting to increase the budgets of local school districts.”
