In the mailer, Margiotta points to "a record of accomplishments," citing "no teacher layoffs," "neighborhood schools," "school choice and stability," "student achievement" and the record amount of scholarship money earned by the Class of 2011.
"As chairman of the Wake County School Board, Ron Margiotta has taken bold steps to improve the way we educate our children," says the mailer.
On no teacher layoffs, the mailer says "in tough financial times, Ron worked successfully to develop a budget which resulted in no loss of teacher positions in Wake County Schools and maintained all student-teacher ratios."
On neighborhood schools, it says "children can now spend more productive time in classrooms closer to home rather than being bused across the county."
On school choice and stability, it points to "a student assignment model that will allow parents to make the best decisions for their family and children's educational needs while providing long-term stability.
On student achievement, the mailer points to how Wake continues to outscore the state and national averages on the SAT exam.
The other side of the mailer has the tag line "common sense leadership for our schools."
"I believe in educating our children in world class schools equipped for the 21st Century and giving parents a greater choice where they will attend," Margiotta says in the mailer. "This will provide families more stability and predictability in planning for their children's educational needs."
