NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law a measure to make it more difficult for teachers to obtain and keep tenure in Tennessee. Haslam signed the bill in a ceremony at the state Capitol on Tuesday, shortly after the House Education Committee advanced another education bill on the new governor's agenda that would lift a cap on charter schools in Tennessee.
