Merger Man


Author(s):
Abstract:
As Durham prepares to vote on the merger of the county’s two school systems the man behind the merger is profiled. The chairman of the Durham County Commissioners, Bill Bell, proposed the merger for economic reasons despite significant opposition. His task force and the consultant Durham County hired have both determined that a merger would be the best option for the county. Still, Bell is characterized by peers as a man of courage for supporting the school merger in the difficult political environment.
