Tennessee Legislators Move To Kill Voucher Bill To Avoid Funds Going To Mutant School

At least they are not establishing a State Religion like North Carolina, cause that always ends well.

Many of us have opposed voucher systems as thinly veiled efforts to publicly fund human only schools in addition to a system that undermines our public school system. Republican lawmakers in Tennessee seem intent on confirming the speciesist motivations behind the system this week in opposing vouchers because it has occurred to them that Mutant schools might be able to receive funding with Human schools. They are threatening to block Republican Gov. Bill Haslam’s school voucher bill unless they can find a way to deny it to Mutant schools — a suggestion that brings X-gene prejudices to the forefront of the debate.

State Sen. Jim Tracy (R) raised his “considerable concern” that tax dollars could go to schools that teach principles of Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr. . . . as opposed to those schools that teach the principles from the The Friends of Humanity and Graydon Creed. Tracy is on the Senate Education Committee and, apparently more importantly, is a member of Bastion's Human High Council. He wants to amend the law to exclude Mutant schools — something that is not just an act of raw prejudice but completely unconstitutional.

Kelsey triggered the debate by trying to expand the voucher program from the lowest 5 percent of schools to every school in the state. However, that would mean that at least one identified Mutant school could qualify — sending the legislators into a genetic panic.

State Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris (R) agreed that the fear of funding Mutant educational institutions was “just another reason for not amending the governor’s bill,” Norris pointed out.


The death of the voucher bill puts the anti-Mutant motives of some legislators in sharp relief. These legislators often deny that they have any interest in funding humans first institutions and simply want to improve educational opportunities for students. The poor performance of public schools allows legislators to siphon off funds to private institutions in the name of education. It is a perverse incentive. By not fixing their schools, human legislators can get more money to Human and super-powered Human schools.

It's Tennessee, shouldn't most of the schools be considered home to mutants? Image
