DEMANDING A QUALITY EDUCATION FOR EVERY CHILD

DEMANDING A QUALITY EDUCATION FOR EVERY CHILD

Mayor Briley is taking a hands-on approach to make sure that every child can get a quality education, no matter where they live, and no matter where they go to school.

Demanding more accountability from the School Board – Mayor Briley is taking a stronger role in Metro Nashville Public School finances, operations, and human resources than any previous mayor.

Establishing an Education Kitchen Cabinet – To focus on a strategic plan to help low-performing priority schools, Mayor Briley has established a working task force of Nashville education leaders.

Pushing for pay raises for teachers – Mayor Briley's budget allows MNPS to give teachers a 4.5% pay increase - the biggest pay raise given to Nashville teachers in more than a decade.

Creating scholarships for MNPS graduates - The Nashville GRAD program helps students cover the costs of attending Nashville State Community College or the Tennessee College of Applied Technology.
