GOV. HASLAM INTRODUCES NEW BILLS FOR SCHOLARSHIPS, SCHOOL SCHEDULES AND JUVENILE JUSTICE REFORM

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has introduced bills that add credit-hour requirements for scholarships at higher education institutions, reform the juvenile justice system and shrink the University of Tennessee’s board.

The Republican governor’s office says the Complete College Tennessee Act of 2018 would require Tennessee Promise and HOPE scholarship students to take 30 credit hours over 12 months, or risk losing part of their scholarships.

It also requires structured scheduling at community and technical schools.

The Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2018 would reserve detention and out-of-home placement for serious juvenile criminal offenders or those posing public safety risks, implement length of custody limits, invest in evidence-based programming and community resources, and other efforts.
