Grant To Increase Graduation Rates

The Tennessee Board of Regents says it will invest a $2 million grant received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation into programs that will help increase graduation rates, especially among first-generation and low-income students. According to The Tennessean, the board said in a statement Monday that the grant would help expand and improve services offered at schools. The board includes the state's 46 public colleges that aren't part of the University of Tennessee system.
In a statement, TBR Chancellor John Morgan says the money will go toward workshops and training that will encourage faculty and staff across the system to make the most of existing programs.
Each program that the funding will support was developed around Gov. Bill Haslam's Drive to 55 initiative, aimed to increase the number of college graduates in the state.


Haslam Says Tennesseans Scared About Refugees
AP Wednesday November 25, 2015

Gov. Bill Haslam says fears about terrorists settling in Tennessee while posing as refugees from the fighting in Syria have reached new heights following the attacks in Paris.
In the governor's words: "People in Tennessee are scared - maybe as scared as anything I've seen."
Haslam last week called on the federal government to halt the settlement of Syrian refugees in Tennessee unless state agencies can become involved in the vetting process. But the governor said there's been no indication so far that President Barack Obama's administration has any interest in giving states a role in background checks.
Haslam said conversations with the White House and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have allayed some of his concerns about the vetting process that can take two years to complete.


Funding Board Projects Growth
AP Wednesday November 25, 2015

The State Funding Board has issued its official revenue projections for the current and next budget years that fall below the estimates presented by experts earlier this month.
The panel made up by the finance commissioner and the state's three constitutional officers on Monday predicted that this year's surplus will be up to $353 million, while next year's revenues could grow by up to $348 million.
The experts had estimated a range of $340 million to $422 million for the surplus; and next year's growth was pegged at $376 million to $525 million.
Members of the funding panel said they wanted to be conservative in the estimates used to shape the state's annual spending plan. They also want to treat a combined $350 million in corporate taxes as one-time revenue.
