(Nashville) The Tennessee State Board of Education could make a decision today on whether to overturn the rejections of three Memphis charter schools.

In October, the schools’ operators submitted applications to Memphis City Schools.

The Shelby County School Board denied their applications because they didn’t meet the necessary requirements.

The operators appealed to the state board.

State legislators are considering changing the process of approving charter’s schools in the hands of the state.
