DEMANDING EXCELLENT SCHOOLS
We organize and develop powerful parent leaders to ignite a movement that demands equitable education policies and practices in Nashville public education.
PROPEL stands for Parents Requiring Our Public Education system to Lead. Our children are brilliant and deserving of a world-class education. Our current public education system has failed generations of Black and Brown families so it’s up to us to change it. We are educating and equipping parents with the knowledge and tools to demand radical systemic change.
The majority of the families we serve don’t get to choose their zip code but expect excellent schools like affluent neighborhoods. And if they’re not excellent, we demand the freedom to choose where and how our children are educated.
Our children deserve to have access to equitable resources and opportunities- whether it’s the best principals, the best teachers, technology or beautiful playgrounds.
We expect our children to go to college, have rewarding careers and America’s promise. That means they need to be college ready no matter what.
Change the future for our children
“A child without education is like a bird without wings.”Tibetan proverb
