Best of 2016 in Nashville Education: #4 Amy Frogge, School Board Member


This woman is a force. And flanked by a force, to boot!
First, I must acknowledge my personal admiration for Amy. Our relationship started out as a working one and since my leaving Metro Schools, it continues as one of mutual respect (I think). Because while our platforms on education are as different as our race and sometimes as distant as her west of Nashville suburb from my east of Nashville suburb, we both have hearts for children (and animals).

I have sort of tripped into the ed reform world where Amy is not a friend and a world about which she speaks and writes with severity. Still, she stands for something greater than herself and fights fiercely for it, hence, Amy’s Army, the scores of supporters who helped her take the school board race.

Our passions will, no doubt, continue to collide, but, I got nothing but love and respect for the wife, mother of two, and ardent animal lover. Soldier on!
