What impact will the community-based school assignment plan have on Wake County real estate and property taxes?
The "Cost of Schools Plan" is the title of the discussion forum that will be held Tuesday from 6-8:15 p.m. at the Hot Point Cafe at North Hills in Raleigh. Some of the names of the speakers should be familiar.
Speakers include Knightdale Mayor Russell Killen, who spoke at the Friends of Diversity press conference, and Wake Education Partnership VP Tim Simmons. His boss, Ann Denliger, also attended the Friends of Diversity event.
Anne Sherron, the District 6 board advisory council chairwoman and a member of the school board's student assignment committee, will also be speaking in her role as a realtor.
Sherron has repeatedly said, including at the March 20 Great Schools in Wake Coalition forum, that the new board's actions are causing companies not to want to relocate to Wake County.
Leaders of the Wake Schools Community Alliance were invited to attend as well. But Jennifer Mansfield, a member of the WSCA's steering committee, said she's not sure if anyone will be able to attend because of scheduling conflicts.
I don't know enough about the other speakers to say if they have a particular viewpoint about scrapping the use of the diversity policy.
The event is open to the public but you're asked to RSVP.
