Charter School Supporters Protest Nashville Officials' Hostility

Nashville charter school supporters called in reinforcements from Washington, D.C., Thursday to help protest the hostility they claim Metro officials show toward charters.

The protesters also opposed Metro Councilman Steve Glover’s plan to ask the state to give Nashville a moratorium on approving charter schools.

“We’re here to essentially send the message that the hostility toward high-quality charter schools needs to end and that we need to be seen as a tool,” said Rebecca Lieberman, vice president of external affairs for the Tennessee Charter School Center.

    The city council is blatantly pro-teacher union and anti-voucher and the attempts to squelch vouchers are verging into criminality.
