Wake County school administrators could face a lot of questions about whether the new student assignment plan being unveiled Tuesday does enough to balance schools by student achievement.
As noted in today's article, the versions of the new plan that school board members saw as it was being developed is producing some vastly conflicting reactions. How that shapes what the final plan looks like remains to be seen.
For instance, school board member John Tedesco said it looks to be a workable hybrid of the old assignment plan and the choice plan. He praised the new plan’s strong focus on proximity and its provision for families to apply to multiple schools in their areas.
