The state limits the number of foreign-born employees in charter schools:
The House gave final legislative approval Monday to a bill that calls for restrictions on the number of foreigners employed by Tennessee charter schools and requires reporting of all funds they receive from outside of the country.
Pushed by The Eagle Forum, a Christian conservative organization, SB3345 says the local school system overseeing a charter school can require that no more than 3.5 percent of the schools employees be from foreign countries.
As originally proposed, the limitation would have been be mandatory, but as amended allows local school systems overseeing charter schools to waive the requirement if deemed necessary. The original version also restricted foreign funding of charter schools, though the amendment simply requires reporting of the funds.
