Is the move to only have one public comment section a month at Wake County school board meetings an effort to streamline operations or to silence the public?
As noted in today's article, the board is set to give final approval this afternoon to policy changes that would eliminate one of the two monthly comment sections. One of the two regular board meetings would be redesignated as a work session, which would have no public comment.
The changes were proposed by school board chairman Ron Margiotta, who said it would make the board run more efficiently.
