Johnson City Teacher’s Union Says No To Inter-Local School Funding Plan
In yet another twist and turn for the current inter-local school funding agreement between Johnson City and the Town of Jonesborough, the Johnson City Education Association is now publicly opposing the agreement. In a Facebook Press Release, the Johnson City teachers union says it stands in opposition to the agreement being considered between the Johnson City Commission and the Washington County Tennessee Commission. The group says in the release the current agreement does little to appease the needs of Johnson City schools and if approved will set a precedent across the state of Tennessee that could have overwhelming funding effects for city-county school districts. The union goes on to ask Johnson City Commissioners to not accept the current proposal until the needs of the Johnson City School System are met.
