The Wake County school board may include language calling for voluntary diversity in the revised student assignment policy.
As noted in today's online article by Thomas Goldsmith, board members at today's policy committee meeting talked about having some diversity language in the new policy 6200. It looks like the language would be similar to what's in the voluntary desegregation resolution that was passed last week to apply for a federal magnet schools grant.
One of the continuing points of contention is that the new Policy 6200 didn't have any references to diversity.
Amid prodding today from board members Anne McLaurin and Keith Sutton, committee chairwoman Debra Goldman agreed that the revised student assignment policy should make a direct link to the desegregation resolution.
