The county commissioners have put the funding hot potato in the school board's lap.
The commissioners voted this afternoon to request the school board, Wake Tech and non-profits to participate in a 1.8 percent funding cut. If these groups say no, the commissioners can later implement the cut anyway.
It's putting the school system in the position of deciding whether it will give back $5.7 million. The school board could offer to give less than $5.7 million or nothing to put the issue back with the commissioners.
