Several people filed today for Wake school board, including a person that hasn't been mentioned before on the blog.
John Tedesco, a vice president for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, filed to run in the District 2 seat that Horace Tart hopes to retain. Click here for Tedesco's web site.
"Forced busing, forced year-round assignments, redistribution, increased school violence, increased drop-out rates, schools bursting at the seams, and a system growing out of control, are merely the symptoms of our real problem," according to Tedesco's web site. "Shuffling kids to balance out numbers, test scores, and income ONLY waters down the real problems to the point where we can not identify or then solve. We have a SYSTEM and a Board that does not understand their primary responsibility is to put our children, families, & communities 1st."
Also filing today in District 2 were Tart, a builder and developer seeking a second term, and Cathy Truitt, a retired Johnston County educator.
Before anyone asks, Wake Schools Community Alliance has not endorsed anyone in District 2.
Filing runs until noon July 17.
