If Wake County Schools Superintendent Del Burns is ousted early tonight, it won't be because his supporters stayed silent.
As noted in today's article, there's been an active lobbying effort over the past few days by people who want the school board to allow Burns to stay on through his June 30 resignation date. Del's Army, a Facebook group organized by the son of former school board candidate Carlene Lucas, has become a central point for Burns' backers.
"Other parents like myself need to stand up and speak out," Lucas said. "We hope they listen to us and not the elite few."
