Supporters of the old Wake County diversity policy are urging the school system to slow down the pace for adopting a new student assignment plan.
In an op-ed piece today, Great Schools in Wake Coalition members Sharon Eckard and Amy Lee argue that there are too many questions unanswered right now for the school board to vote on a plan. But much of the criticism in the piece focuses on the blue plan while both writers argue that it would be "easier" to support a modified green plan.
"Let's slow down the pace and analyze the options with rigor and appropriate details," Eckard and Lee write. "There is much more at stake in these plans than 'Where will my child go to school?' These plans will affect all Wake County residents through the real estate market, school taxes, the ability to cost-effectively attract high-performing teachers and the allocation of money among schools."
