Providing every child in Nashville with a high-quality public education should be our top priority as a city.
We must always remember that our future will be directly shaped by the support we provide our public schools today. As both a recipient of a public education and a proud parent of Metro Nashville Public Schools students, I am personally committed to improving our public schools for every child in Nashville.
As mayor, my vision for MNPS is for our schools to be the fastest improving district in the country. This vision can become a reality by fully funding our schools and providing teachers with the resources and staffing assistance they so badly need. We must form and maintain a strong partnership with the director of schools and the school board to achieve a shared vision for MNPS.
