Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker says he's organizing people for a potential lawsuit against the Wake County school board for eliminating the socioeconomic diversity.
Meeker told members of the East Raleigh Citizens Advisory Committee on Monday that he’s trying to enlist people to sue if they feel the school board’s new student assignment plan violates state constitutional law. The board hopes to approve the new community zone plan by the end of next year.
The state NAACP has also threatened to sue the school board on similar grounds.
