ABSTRACT
The number of charter school proposals in Tennessee has more than doubled this year. In the second application period since the state enacted its charter school law, 29 groups submitted proposals to open the independent public schools. Last year, 12 applicants submitted proposals by the November 15 deadline. The numbers were low last year, one charter school advocate said, because the charter school law passed in July and the state didn't release the application form until September. The applications will be reviewed by local school boards, which must decide whether to sponsor the schools by mid-January. Applicants who are rejected can appeal to the state board of education.
