The Wake County Taxpayers Association is making the charge that the Wake County school system has 55,000 empty seats in its bid to defeat the $810 million school bond issue.
School bond supporters say Wake lacks the capacity to deal with the new students coming. But opponents of the bonds say the district has enough seats to get by for at least a little while.
“In 2013, the schools have 205,000 student seats,” the WCTA says in this palm card. “But, they only have 149,000 students. That’s 55,000 seats free.”
