From Will Pinkston
After eight months on the Nashville School Board, it’s clear to me that our community is spending too much time talking about charter schools and not enough time focused on improving our existing neighborhood schools. To help reset priorities, I’m hosting a community meeting in School Board District 7 on Saturday, April 20, at 2 p.m. Officials from Metro Nashville Public Schools will be on hand to discuss large-scale school improvement strategies, receive public comment, and answer any questions you might have. This meeting will be held at Conexión Américas’ new Casa Azafrán Community Center, 2195 Nolensville Road. Please join us Saturday afternoon for coffee — and a conversation about the future of Nashville’s public schools.
