Mayoral hopeful Buck Dozier wants to create a $1 billion endowment to generate $75 million in interest that would be funneled directly to the city's schools, an idea first floated in an old Nashville Scene column written by the paper's former editor and co-owner, Bruce Dobie. "If this city can raise enough money to build a symphony hall," asks the daily Tennessean in an editorial promoting Dobie/Dozier's idea, "why can't the same be done for public schools?"
