Bill to elect superintendents fails

Legislation to allow elected school superintendents in some Tennessee counties failed by a single vote in a House committee Tuesday. Sponsor Rep. Frank Niceley, R-Strawberry Plains, cited opposition from House Education Committee Chairman Richard Montgomery, R-Sevierville, as the deciding factor and said he may face political consequences. Montgomery said he can see both sides of the argument over whether superintendents should be elected or appointed by school boards.
