Video of the East Nashville Parents Advisory Committee meeting.

I have not watched this video myself yet but plan to. We know that there is a real divide in east Nashville ever since Dr. Register proposed a plan to deal with east Nashville's failing schools. Most of the Nashville "priority" schools are located in East Nashville. Register proposed a plan to deal with this which includes allowing some of the schools to close, allowing the establishment of competing charter schools and converting some of the failing schools to charter schools. The charter school experience in Nashville has shown  charter schools can succeed where regular public schools fail. Some in east Nashville have welcomed this new direction and are very supportive, while others do not want to change the old pubic school model and oppose any use of charter schools to improve education in east Nashville. Some seem to actually love their bad schools.
