Uniting the opposition groups

Are we reaching the point now that parental anger over reassignment could lead to major changes in the school system?

As noted in today's article, there are a whole lot of groups around who want to change the school system. Many of them will meet Thursday at 6 p.m. at Holly Springs Town Hall to see if they can find common ground.

"The more you impact, the more you'll alienate," said Kathleen Brennan, co-founder of Wake CARES. "At some point you'll reach the saturation point. Whether that's been reached remains to be seen."

Reassignment's not just growth

Growth may be the "primary driver" in the new reassignment plan but it's not the only one.

As noted in today's article, Wake's use of multiple factors in student assignment means more kids are being moved than if proximity was the sole factor. Dealing with factors such as proximity, diversity, leaving enough seats open in magnet schools and streamlining feeder patterns adds more kids to the plan.

School administrators say none of the six factors has a higher priority so they balance them all to come up with the plan.
