Wake County Schools Superintendent Tony Tata came out with a three-point message at his State of the Schools address on Thursday.
As noted in today's article by Thomas Goldsmith, Tata talked enthusiastically about the gains that Wake made on state exams. But he warned that the results could drop as Wake and the rest of the state switches to the new common core curriculum and tests this school year.
The third prong of Tata's speech was the need "to make a compelling case" for the passage of a school bond issue in 2013.
