Who is Nashville Rise?
In May 2016, Davidson County parents formed a parent coalition, Nashville Rise. We inform, empower and engage other parents and community members to advocate for high-quality public schools.
We envision a Nashville where all children receive the schooling and support they need to live successful, fulfilling lives. Through a series of informational trainings, parents are exposed to high-quality educational practices and civic leadership development opportunities.
As empowered parents, we hold our city’s educational and school leadership accountable for promises made to students and families to help create policies that better serve students. Therefore ensuring every school, regardless of zip code, can become a high-quality school.
Nashville Rise is a parent advocacy organization that informs, empowers, and engages all parents to elevate their voices around increasing access to high-quality educational options.
All parents will have access to high-quality educational options resulting in all children graduating K-12 College and Career ready.
