Make School Board Elections Count

Tennessee lawmakers are considering a major change to school board elections. If passed, legislation in the state’s House of Representatives would require localities to schedule school board elections on the dates of the federal primary and general elections in August and November, respectively, and to eliminate staggered terms. Moving school board elections to coincide with major federal elections will boost voter participation in these critical contests, which shape the course of localities’ educational offerings and students’ future prospects. 1
