TRAILER – By Design: The Shaping of Nashville’s Public Schools

On what marks the 67th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case that ruled racial segregation in public schools unconstitutional, the Nashville Public Education Foundation has revealed its latest project aimed at creating schools where all students can thrive.

This is the trailer for a 60-minute documentary, By Design: The Shaping of Nashville’s Public Schools. To be released widely later this summer, the documentary is intended to educate city leaders and the community about how public will and policy has formed the basis for the city’s current education system, and to generate awareness and advocacy and stimulate policy solutions for a better public school system for all students.
