Great Hearts withdraws Tennessee application

As mentioned earlier, Great Hearts Academies had applied for a charter in Tennessee, but had faced opposition from the Metro Nashville school board. After yet another school board rejection, Great Hearts has cancelled its plans to expand to Nashville. Read more about it:

In Tennessee, the local school board is involved in charter school decisions, and Metro Nashville did not follow orders from the state agency. In Texas, charter schools are authorized at the state level, by the State Board of Education and the Texas Education Agency.
