The Nashville Alliance for Public Education (NAPE) and Dr. Pedro Garcia, Director of Metro Schools met this week for lunch with a diverse group of 21 Hispanic residents of Nashville. The meeting, in which residents learned about the activities of NAPE and had direct dialog with Dr. Garcia, was coordinated by Jose Gonzalez, member of the Board of NAPE and Director of Conexion Americas, and was hosted at Glencliff High School.
As much as a third of the audience members were parents with children currently enrolled in Metro Schools. A number of concerns, interests and fresh ideas were presented, and future meetings involving the Hispanic community are planned.
