It looks like the discussion was lively Thursday night when John Tedesco and the Rev. William Barber taped their debate for NC SPIN.
As noted in today's article by Thomas Goldsmith, both men got into some heated exchanges about the direction of the Wake County school system and the elimination of the diversity policy. Both men held to their positions.
"You are fixing something that isn't broken," said Barber, president of the state NAACP.
Barber called on Tedesco, the most visible face of the new school board majority, to back rescinding the vote on the diversity policy.
The answer was no from Tedesco, who said the board majority was reflecting the wishes of the public by going to community-based schools.
"We talked with thousands of people at that time (during the election campaign) and we came in feeling confident about the direction the community wanted," Tedesco said. "What we wanted to do was focus more on providing stability. And we wanted to provide fair choice for families.
"Families need to think they can work with us, not against us," Tedesco added.
