The Memphis Daily News published an article titled “Time for Tuition Equality in Tennessee” about the upcoming “Tuition Equality” bill that the upcoming state legislative session will address. This bill would offer in-state tuition to children who graduate from Tennessee high schools but are currently required to pay out-of-state tuition to attend a Tennessee college or university due to immigration status.
