The Knoxville Chamber took a shot to the jaw Friday on the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page over the school voucher issue. But the chamber is slugging back.
The editorial — “Tennessee’s Chamber Maids” — chastises the Knoxville, Chattanooga and Nashville chambers of commerce for siding “with the teachers unions to kill education vouchers.”
Knoxville Chamber CEO Mike Edwards said the Journal completely mischaracterized the chamber’s position on the voucher bill. And the newspaper is wrong about the status of the bill.
