South Johnston lands two players in N.C. Coaches Association East-West All-Star football game.
Since you guys asked, here's a post on the potential vote today to reassign around 100 Garner High School students to Southeast Raleigh High.
The reassignment of these students, who were not in the three-year plan approved last year by the old board, was pushed for by board member John Tedesco. It's being hailed by Garner officials but panned by school board member Keith Sutton.
The students in these nodes do live in Southeast Raleigh.
Garner, Clayton, Cary and Richmond County will scrimmage in the first session of a jamboree at Clayton on Aug. 12. Southeast Raleigh, Harnett Central, Fuquay-Varina and South Johnston will hit in the second.
The actual student reassignment changes recommended on Thursday were small in number, but they show the difference in thinking with the new Wake County school board majority.
As noted in today's article, the board's student assignment committee recommended seven changes for this fall’s student assignment plan and left on the table for further review a dozen other changes. All were based on parental requests to have their children attend schools closer to home.
“We’re not talking about socioeconomic status anymore,” said school board member John Tedesco, chairman of the student assignment committee, after the meeting. “Once we pass the resolution, we won’t be talking about it again.”

A new group of students came out Tuesday to speak against the changes being considered by the new Wake County school board majority.
As noted in today's article, several Southeast Raleigh High School students spoke out in defense of the diversity policy and the current magnet program during Tuesday's public comment section. One of the repeated messages was that low-income students just can't be expected to learn as well at high-poverty schools.
"Is it not profoundly obvious that the induction of neighborhood schools and the eradication of magnet programs as we know will inevitably obliterate Wake County's long-standing title as one of the best school districts in the nation," said Victor Galloway, a senior at Southeast Raleigh High. "My thoughts are why would you want to change something that has since been a pillar of progressiveness and success?"

An out-of-work special education teacher wants to fill the Wake school board District 6 vacancy.
Etta Wilson filed her application today to seek the position created by Beverley Clark's resignation from the school board. Wilson was most recently a special education teacher at Southeast Raleigh High School until June.
Wilson said she had resigned her job there in hopes of working at an elementary school or a middle school but hasn't been picked up yet. She's like a lot of other teachers who are hoping to get hired after the 10th day of traditional-calendar schools.
