McGuire's Resolution Appeals for Dissolving Metro School Board

CM Sean McGuire will introduce a memorializing resolution Tuesday requesting that the Davidson County delegation to the TN Gen Ass introduce legislation to dissolve the Metro School Board and establish a new Board to be appointed by the Mayor.

Sounds good if my Mayor agrees with me on education priorities, bad if he or she does not. I also worry that Mayors are going to appoint friends and yes-(wo)men who may not act in the best interests of constituent families. I'm not saying I believe the current system works well. However, how would CM McGuire assure that this is not just the application of a business model to public education (which is often a mismatch)?
