The Wake Education Partnership's new report calling for an overhaul of the education system to provide students a "world-class education" is now officially out.
But the question is whether the group can sell the findings to the public to bring about the sweeping recommendations included in the report.
Will it succeed or will it end up on the wayside like the group's highly touted school funding proposal?
Officials from the partnership argue that the difference is that the funding proposal was caught up in the recession. They say that this new report covers changes over a much longer period of time.
Even though the recession is far from over, Ann Denlinger, president of the partnership, said the report provides a framework for discussing future changes.
After giving the public some time to review the report, the partnership will begin a year-long effort in October to see how the recommendations can be implemented.
“This is designed to stimulate conversation,” Denlinger said. “It’s up to the community to decide what pieces they want and what they can afford.”
