About the New Knerds Movement

The New Knerds is a group of scholars and teachers from elementary and middle schools in the Metro Atlanta Area. Knerds stand for: Knowledgeable-Educated-Relentlessly-Driven-Scholars.

The U.S. Education Secretary, Arne Duncan said it best; “I believe that education is the civil rights issue of our generation. And if you care about promoting opportunity and reducing inequality and social injustice, the classroom is the place to start.”

The New Knerds firmly believe that motivation is the “key” component to ensuring that our future leaders become most successful!  Visit:  , for more info about the New Knerds.
