Since the Wake Schools Community Alliance has a new press release out today, it's better late than never to post a Coalition of Concerned Citizens for African American Children press release on the WSCA.
In a Sunday press release, the CCCAAC takes shots at the WSCA for supporting the community-based schools resolution. The CCCAAC accuses the WSCA of being "a group of citizens whose views/political platform do not support equal education for all children, namely low income students."
There's a slightly different version of the press release on the group's web site. But here's the press release the CCCAAC e-mailed to the media on Sunday:
The Coalition Of Concerned Citizens For African American Children comment on WSCA's response regarding low income children and their support of WCPSS Resolution
WSCA is comprised of a group of citizens who cannot identify with the struggles that many of our parents and children face in Wake County.
WSCA is a group of citizens whose views/political platform do not support equal education for all children, namely low income students.
WSCA members do not know how neighborhoods in Southeast Raleigh are structured and developed.
It is time for WSCA to stop hiding behind our children in an effort to implement/support neighborhood schools.
The CCCAAC believes that education is the great equalizer and WCPSS present diversity policy supports equal education for all students without focusing on our students economic status.
CCCAAC believes that children benefit when they attend racially and socio-economic diverse schools.
