Folks from near Atlanta will be coming to town this week to see what tips they can pick up from the Triangle, including from the Wake school system.
The delegation from Gwinnett County, an Atlanta suburb, will spend part of Friday learning about education issues.
Things will kick off with former Superintendent Bill McNeal and former school board member Tom Oxholm talking about their new book, "A School District's Journey to Excellence: Lessons From Business and Education."
Afterward, the group will meet with Ann Denlinger, president of the Wake Education Partnership, to talk about "promoting public responsibility for globally competitive schools in Wake County."
The final thing will be a discussion about the Wake Early College of Health and Sciences. The magnet school allows students to graduate in five years with a high school diploma and two years of college credit.

Turnabout is fair play. Back in April, several Wake school board members and administrators were among a delegation that visited Nashville, Tenn., to see what they could learn there.
(I'm off until Wednesday and won't be responding to messages until then.)
