I'm disappointed that the only quotes contained in this morning's Nashville City Paper article about the 3rd draft of the MNPS budget are (once again) from board members that are leaving (Nevill & Hunt). I would really like to hear what the rest of the board members have to say. And I'm sure lots of voters in the 2nd, 6th & 8th districts would appreciate knowing what those school board candidates have to say about the entire process, what they'd do differently and what they support regarding this $556,250,500.00 budget before the August 3rd elections.

Superintendent Garcia told us back in February that last year the school budget was 37.6% of Metro's overall budget and more importantly 73,000 of our children.
