Government Shutdown Prompts Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross To Advise Tennessee Schools To Take Out Low-Interest Loans Through Students In Form Of Dance Tickets

At the Signal Mountain Middle / High School Snowball Dance on January 26th, teachers handling tickets didn’t have correct change to return to students. As a result, numerous “IOUs” were written on the backs of tickets. This was an incredibly irresponsible way for teachers to handle the situation, both logistically and as there are very clear laws on cash handling within schools.
