I’m sure Dr. Joseph hasn’t cleared out his office, but for all intents and purposes we are in director search mode. The group responsible for that search is the severely splintered school board. Sadly, the community surrounding the board is equally fractured. Some jumping for joy over the ouster, while others have lost faith that the board will do what they were elected to do.
While I am one who is relieved by a change in leadership for our schools, I’m also profoundly aware of what this city I love has lost in the process. I pray for unity, racial reconciliation, and support for strong public education moving forward in Nashville.
