In case you missed it, today's Sunday Forum includes some Q&As on Wake's diversity policy in advance of this week's UNC Center for Civil Rights conference on school resegregation.
As the articles note, Wake enjoys a national reputation for its diversity policy. Eric Houck, one of the presenters at this week's conference and former research director for the Wake Education Partnership, said in his interview that he's surprised more local people don't recognize Wake's reputation.
"One thing people in Wake County may not realize is just what kind of reputation Wake has nationally as an innovator and as a high-performing school district," Houck said in the Q&A with Rob Waters. "I'm surprised at how little weight that reputation seems to carry in your internal discussions."
