The Coalition of Concerned Citizens for African American Children is calling a community meeting for Thursday to complain about "the inaction of" the Wake County school board's student achievement committee.
In a Tuesday night press release, CCCAAC calls it an "an inexcusable dereliction of duty" that the student achievement committee hasn't met for a year. The standing committees were suspended by the Republican board majority but have been restored by the new Democratic majority.
The CCCAAC specifically focuses on how the grading policy has been put on hold. The CCCAAC charges that putting the policy on hold "has resulted in our children being retained at alarming rates and failing courses that are needed for graduation.
