Welcome to our page, where we're all invested in creating a better school system for the City of Atlanta.

 

If you're here, it means you care about our schools and our community. Whether you're a family with children in APS schools, a resident who supports the district through property taxes, a business owner, or a concerned citizen, your input/voice matters. 

 

Let's face it: our schools are facing challenges. Despite an 84% graduation rate, less than 35% of our students are proficient in reading and math across the district. Sadly, student success differs dramatically between classrooms just a mile apart.

We have to change that. We can change that.

 

A child’s race or zip code should not determine the quality of their education.

 

It's time for new leaders with courage, creativity, and commitment to lead APS into a more just future. 

 

That is why I am running to be your APS At-Large Seat 9 representative.

 

For nearly 20 years, I've been fighting for excellence and equity in education. As a teacher, an instructional coach and an attorney. None of these roles have been as challenging as being a parent advocating for her neurodivergent child in APS schools. Like many of you, I know how frustrating it can be to reach out to the district and not feel heard.

 

My commitment to you is to be a leader who listens and fights just as hard for your children as I fight for my own.

 

Every cluster, every classroom, and every child deserves a quality education.

 

Together, we can make that a reality.

 

In solidarity, 

Nkoyo
