Supporters of Wake County's old school diversity policy are going on the offensive in attacking the latest response to federal investigators justifying the change made by the school board majority.
During Tuesday's school board meeting, multiple speakers criticized the board majority's assertions that the diversity policy may have hurt academic achievement. Often to cheers, words like "B.S.," "cherry picking," "misleading" "treacherous" and "dishonesty" were used by speakers, especially when it came to attacking the district's linkage of long bus rides with lower achievement.
"The governance of this board majority has reached a new low with the release of your response to the Office of Civil Rights last week," said Susan Evans. "And I really thought you didn't have any lower to go."
