Shelby Co. Commission finds compromise for pre-K funding

(WMC) - The Shelby County Election Commission found a compromise in their latest pre-K funding battle.

Monday, the commission approved $3 million in surplus dollars to go to pre-K through the Shelby County Schools Education Foundation.

Originally, the commission considered a plan to fund pre-K with $6 million. Mayor Mark Luttrell asked the commission to wait and do a study before committing $3 million.

The two sides met in the middle Monday and the commission voted to lower the amount from $6 million to $3 million.
