The three new Democratic members of the Wake County school board are all saying that Tuesday is too early to adopt the new student assignment plan.
New board member Susan Evans said additional study time might mean the plan would not be implemented until 2013, but might well be worth it.
“Do we have to have this in place for 2012-2013, when 94-95 percent of parents are happy where they are?” Evans asked. “I think we could take the time to vet it out and get it right. We definitely need to continue to work on a long-term plan.”
Evans was joined at tonight's student assignment public hearing by Christine Kushner and Jim Martin. Most of the speakers either asked for a delay or changes to the plan. More on that tomorrow morning.
