Members of the Republican majority on the Wake County Board of Commissioners could have some tough questions today for school officials about funding the new career technical education high school.
It's not that the commissioners think the CTE high school is a bad idea. In fact, they like the idea of setting up a high school for Wake County students to get training in skills in case they don't plan to go to college.
But Republican commissioners who've criticized the Democratic school board majority's firing of Superintendent Tony Tata could begin to show their public skepticism of the school system's actions. Signs of that were shown in various media interviews on Tuesday.
Relations between the two boards could get colder in the next few months as school construction bond issues and school funding are discussed.
