Wake County school board vice chairman John Tedesco may find himself overseeing all of the state's public schools.
In a statement today, Tedesco said that he will decide after New Year’s Day whether to run in 2012 for state Schools Superintendent. It could pave the way for a battle between Tedesco and state Schools Superintendent June Atkinson or state Rep. Rick Glazier, who has announced he’s considering running for the position.
“While there are several opportunities for me to consider right now, at this time my focus is my coming wedding, continued service to the children of Wake County, and sharing the holidays with family and friends,” Tedesco said today in a written statement. “In the beginning of the new year I will evaluate further.”
