Since the school shutdowns began due to the pandemic, learning loss and literacy in children have become hot topics in Tennessee. Reaching for Academic Excellence and Accountability for Teachers has fallen to the wayside, leaving children’s education and futures in question.
Many frustrated citizens feel the edicts issued from State and Local Levels are putting children in more danger than the virus ever could.
In this interview with Hamilton County School Board District 1 Representative, Rhonda Thurman, we discuss these topics, along with the ineffectiveness of remote learning, actual educational costs, school budgets, school choice and more.
Rhonda Thurman has served as the District 1 Representative on the Hamilton County School Board since 2004.
She was named PTA Volunteer of the Year at Wallace A. Smith Elementary School and has served as Treasurer of the Pachyderm Club and received a Tough Tusk Award. She has also received the Thomas A. Garrity Award for the Republican Party. She was inducted into the Red Bank High School Hall of Fame in 2017.
Rhonda has fought for her District, Transparency and Excellence. She puts children and the taxpayers first and is a vocal proponent to getting kids back in school.
