Great Schools in Wake Coalition members are making a visual statement at today's Wake County school board meeting about the senior school administrators who've resigned or been pushed out during Superintendent Tony Tata's tenure.
GSIW members have brought several mock headstones. One says "RIP Competent Experienced Staff." Others say the word "Resigned" under the names of David Ansbacher, Michael Evans, Donna Hargens and Don Haydon. For David Holdzkom, it says "Reassigned" under his "headstone."
Some people like Evans, Haydon and Holdzkom were clearly forced out. But for Hargens, she left to become a superintendent.
Lynn Edmonds is scheduled to discuss the issue during public comment.
