In December of 2007 I wrote about the Wake County Public School Board's decision to move kids around (click here), and force year round schools. Many people felt that the Board's decision to move kids to keep an economic balance was the "best" of all opportunities...
The US News and World Report just released the "Best High Schools" in the Country - and Raleigh Charter is listed as number 25! Whow Who! It's a Charter School, not one of those with kids that have been moved all over the county. Look at the stats in this report... does it support being the BIGGEST school system as being the BEST school system?
There are more Board of Education sessions coming for parents to speak out. Go ahead, speak out... but what's really going to make a difference is finding new members to run. We need a change. Bigger is not better.
If you have the experience, and the desire, and the GUTS to buck the system... we want YOU to run for Wake County School Board Member! ... anybody wondering how I REALLY feel???
