Tennessee Bill: Penalize teachers, lobbyists for defaulting on student loans

Teachers and lobbyists who default on student loans could lose the right to practice their professions…

House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh, D-Ripley, said the bill sends the wrong message to teachers already facing ample problems. It means, he said, “You would be able to take a teacher out of a classroom because he or she, because of tough times, has become delinquent on a student loan.”

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS STATE? No wonder why zero of my students want to be teachers when they grow up.
