Here's the voluntary desegregation resolution that drew so much heat at Tuesday's Wake County school board meeting.
As noted in today's article, the board split 5-4 on the resolution's passage. The resolution is needed for Wake to apply for the next round of federal magnet school assistance program grants.
The resolution's supporters say that it shows Wake is still committed to diversity even though it's going to community-based schools. Opponents of the resolution say the call for diversity is hollow and only meant to secure the grant.
The resolution was worked on over a four-hour period Saturday by board members Debra Goldman, Keith Sutton and John Tedesco. Goldman also noted that Saturday was her daughter's birthday.
But Sutton joined the other members of the board minority in voting no on Tuesday.
It's uncertain whether Tuesday's vote was final or if a second vote is needed. Goldman said she's waiting to hear back from board attorney Ann Majestic.
