Recognizing that today's students are tomorrow's workforce, the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce has made improvement of public education its number-one priority. We work closely with Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, as well as with several school systems throughout the region, to advocate for policies and initiatives geared toward helping students prepare for post-secondary education and an eventual career. The overarching purpose of the Chamber's education work is to assure the region’s prosperity by engaging community leadership to transform public education. The Chamber works to engage the community at large in public education and create opportunities for business leaders to get involved. Involvement opportunities for Chamber members include the Chamber’s Education Report Card committee, the Chamber’s Education Committee and the Academies of Nashville.
