Standing Together 4 Strong Community Schools

The more I see, the more I like it.

On Saturday, I wrote about a new group called Standing Together 4 Strong Community Schools.  They're based in Nashville, and seem to have formed around two issues that we'll be hearing a lot about in the very near future:  school vouchers and a state charter school authorizer.  They are against both.  Here's the blog.

The group got a great write-up in today's Tennessean here.  The state charter authorizer is a personal issue in Nashville after the state's recent decision to withhold funding from the district as punishment for not approving a preferred charter management organization.

They'd love for you to "like" their facebook page here.

Memphis folks should get involved on these issues as well - here's the email address:

Good work parents -  a bunch of facebook likes and a very favorable newspaper article all in a couple of days!
