Overlooked in The Tennessean on Saturday, 9/14/13:

Tennessee educators fired a second salvo at Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman on Friday as Nashville’s teachers union announced a vote of no confidence in the beleaguered state leader.

At the same time, a letter from school superintendents asking Gov. Bill Haslam to put the brakes on Huffman’s polices is continuing to gain momentum while its author solicits more signatures.


“Our profession is under attack,” (Metro Nashville Education Association President Stephen) Henry said. “We’re tired of it. Being the first ones out of the chute makes it easier for the others to go on record. We’re done with giving him a pass. We need to make it uncomfortable for him.”

Superintendent Don Lawson's signature count on the petition appears to have grown from 63 last Wednesday to 66 by last Saturday.
