Should the director of Nashville schools report directly to the mayor?

When the candidates were asked if the Director of Schools should report directly to the mayor, only Carol Swain said "yes;" the others said "no." I agree with the others.

“Each member of the school board represents 9,500 children and their parents and those children and those school board members deserve a voice in who is the superintendent of schools,” is what John Cooper said.  While I am disappointed with the functioning of our school board and the last director, I do not want to concentrate all power in the hand of the mayor. I wish the public elected better people to the school board but don't want to take away the power of the people to have a say in public education. I agree with John Cooper.  To see more on this follow this link.
