A bill sponsored by district 36 state Rep. Dennis Powers could require school board members to have at least an associate’s degree in order to serve on a board.
The move would require “members of boards of education to have at least two years of postsecondary education, provided, however, that current members may fulfill their terms,” according to the Tennessee legislature website. Powers sponsors the bill for the house while state Sen. Jim Summerville of Dickson sponsors the bill for the senate.
