There were some interesting bits of news from Wake County Superintendent Tony Tata at today's press conference.
Tata is ramping up efforts to improve bus safety following the spate of accidents so far this year. This news release has the highlights, including asking people to report bad drivers and increasing consequences for drivers who are at fault in accidents.
Tata also said he wants to more aggressively recruit black and Hispanic teachers to make the workforce more reflective of the student enrollment.
