If you are involved in public education in Nashville, you are probably familiar with TC Weber’s blog, Dad Gone Wild. TC publishes new posts every Monday and Friday (and sometimes in between) that explore the ins and outs of what’s happening in Metro Nashville Public Schools.
Love him or hate him, TC fearlessly informs our community about things that are happening that we might not otherwise know about. In this conversation, we talk about the moral implications of overworking and underpaying teachers. We also talk about his blogging journey and what sustains his work.
Finally, TC discusses his decision to run for the District 2 MNPS School Board seat. He shares his priorities: teacher recruitment and retention, capital needs, making sure we’re spending money wisely, and having honest conversations about restorative practices and discipline.
