As expected, the Wake County school board approved the revised student assignment policy tonight.
There wasn't much discussion tonight, in contrast to the first reading, before the 7-2 vote in favor of the revision. Board members Deborah Prickett and John Tedesco were the lone dissenters.
Prickett and Tedesco raised concerns about the inclusion in policy of the goals of minimizing concentrations of low-income and low-performing students at schools.
"I still think the idea of busing students for test scores is a problem,” Tedesco said. “The devil is in the details.”
