Commission says no to K-14

The K-14 educational initiative recently unveiled by The Roane Alliance was struck a blow at Monday’s County Commission meeting.

A resolution endorsing the Roane County Schools’ K-14 plan failed after it was added to the agenda shortly before the meeting.

Seven Commissioners — James Brummett, Benny East, Randy Ellis, Greg Ferguson, Junior Hendrickson, Mike Hooks and Stan Moore — voted against the measure.

Voting in favor were Commission Chairman Ron Berry and Commissioners Peggy Collier, Chris Johnson and Carolyn Granger.
