Under the umbrella of Project Renaissance, this organization seeks to “inform, empower, and engage” Nashville parents.
This past summer the parents of Nashville Rise hosted a forum for all school board candidates which ultimately turned into a social media circus. Three of the school board candidates, also sitting board members, rallied against the forum and refused to participate. Despite the spite, the parent-organized/hosted forum was a huge success taking its rightful place in the education landscape.
And just this month Nashville Rise parents made another splash onto the scene by using their most powerful weapon in support of quality choices by speaking against the school board’s proposed resolution to stop charter growth.
I’m thrilled about NR’s service to MNPS families and fully expect increased participation with new director Neonta Williams at the helm!
