Some Tennessee school districts would be required to provide free feminine hygiene products for students under a new bill filed in the state legislature. Many districts provide feminine care products in nurses' offices. But nurses have reported restocking supplies themselves due to budgetary constraints or relying on nonprofits for help.
Three groups representing West Virginia school groups said they are poised to take statewide action on an education reform omnibus bill and expect to take a vote this week. The bill bundles together a 5 percent pay raise and money for public health insurance with other education reforms, including charter schools.
