New Wake County Superintendent Tony Tata will mark his first day on the job with a visit this morning to Enloe High School to meet with teachers, staff and students.
The visit to Enloe will put Tata right into the hotbed of opposition to eliminating the diversity policy. Tata met some Enloe students for the first time when they were among the protesters who gathered outside the Barbecue Lodge when he spoke to the Wake County Taxpayers Association meeting earlier this month.
In the afternoon, Tata will visit Carnage Middle School and Aversboro Elementary School.
Whether supporters of the diversity policy will support Tata now that he's officially on the job remains to be seen. During the reassignment hearings this month, people were still ripping into both the search process and Tata himself.
