Wake County school board member Debra Goldman talks about what motivated her to run and what she thinks about life in a post-socioeconomic diversity district on today's edition of "The Story."
On "The Story," locally produced by WUNC and heard on National Public Radio stations across the country, Goldman argues that the use of socioeconomic diversity was failing the students. She points to the 54.2 percent graduation rate for low-income students.
Goldman gives an emphatic "no" when asked if she fears something will be lost by dropping the use of socioeconomic diversity. She's putting a lot of faith in the continued use of the magnet program to promote balance.
