A Tennessee lawmaker has taken steps to follow through on a promise not to pursue school voucher legislation this year.
On Wednesday, Rep. Harry Brooks of Knoxville withdrew his bill from consideration for now.
Brooks and Sen. Brian Kelsey of Germantown have said that this year, they won't continue the longstanding push to implement school vouchers.
Vouchers allow public school children to use taxpayer money to go to private schools. Brooks and Kelsey had unsuccessfully advocated last year for a voucher pilot program in Shelby County.
Supporters say vouchers give parents choices. Opponents fear vouchers will drain funding from public schools.

Officials Promise Better Teacher Preparation
AP Thursday January 18, 2018

Tennessee education officials plan to increase teacher preparation program outcomes across the state.
The Tennessean reports the promise follows the launch of a Tennessee Board of Education database detailing how many of the state's preparation programs aren't meeting expected quality standards. Tennessee Higher Education Commission Executive Director Mike Krause said on Tuesday the state can do better.
State Education Commissioner Candice McQueen says improvement plans include increased communication about state expectations to college presidents, connecting professors more closely to schools and state standard resources and a statewide school tour meant to introduce high-achieving, young students to the education profession.
In addition, the state has launched increased accountability measures, including annual reviews of program outcomes, and held expectation meetings with state college presidents.
