Come to RESET Saturday and contribute to the future of public education in Nashville

RESET Saturday is May 30, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at Rocketown (located at 601 Fourth Ave. South – downtown on Rutledge Hill). The event is free, open to the public and very family-friendly.

Project RESETEducation is an issue all of Nashville needs to face – parents, educators, neighborhood leaders, faith leaders, nonprofit leaders, business and civic leaders, politicians and more. 

There has never been a better time to have open discussions about education. In a matter of weeks, voters will elect a new Mayor and Metro Council. The school board has already started its process to select a new Director of Schools.

The idea behind Project RESET is simple – elevate the conversation around public education – get away from the mud-slinging and galvanize the community behind a set of bold priorities that would do more than incrementally improve things but, instead, seriously pick up the pace of improvement.

That starts with RESET Saturday – one day when everyone puts their mind and their muscle to having a larger conversation with a larger array of voices about what we can do to speed up improvement.

The effort was launched by the Nashville Public Education Foundation in partnership with many community organizations and individuals. The name says it all – RESET stands for “Reimagining Education Starts with Everyone at the Table.”

Experts from across the country will be present at RESET Saturday to share what has worked in their respective cities. And there will be loads of interactive stations where you can weigh in with your ideas. There will even be free books for kids, a puppet truck, free food and more.
