From Tennessee BAEO (Black Alliance for Educational Options):
Tennessee BAEO commends the Metro Nashville Public School Board on its vote of confidence in support of STRIVE Collegiate Academy.
We are especially proud of Founder LaKendra Butler for working diligently to offer parents and students access to another high-quality charter option in Metro Nashville. STRIVE Collegiate Academy will open in the Fall of 2015, with a goal of enrolling 120 5th graders for the 2015 - 2016 school year. The school will add an additional grade each year through 8th grade.
For more information about STRIVE Collegiate Academy and the ruling that will allow it open, read the story on tennessean.com.
