A group of 22 former Wake County school board has announced today a press briefing on Monday to complain about the new school board majority's plans to end the diversity policy.
The contacts for the press briefing are John Gilbert and Judy Hoffman. Both are among the 15 former board members who had released a joint letter shortly before the election in October backing the eventual losing school board candidates who supported the diversity policy.
