Wake County school board members Deborah Prickett and Debra Goldman sounded off today about student assignment and the behavior of the public.
During her board member comments, Prickett said she felt she had to respond to today's "irresponsible" press release from "the small fringe group" Great Schools in Wake Coalition. She argued that GSIW's "Let's Find a Better Way" campaign failed to acknowledge that a catalyst for the new student assignment plan was how parents were fed up with the "archaic node assignment system."
"We’ve gone from a controlling do as I say system to families having a choice," Prickett said.
