Two merging TN districts divided on hiring lobbyist. Claims abound that individual needed to go to bat for protecting state's largest urban district against hurtful reforms, like vouchers and charters. Clearly unfounded fear of competition here. Too bad vouchers and charters particularly help struggling urban students.
