Abstract:
Wake County’s school system no longer has a diversity policy. Now, the challenge is to assign Wake County’s students to specific schools by re-drawing lines. If all students went to their local neighborhood schools, the schools would be over-crowded. Some are afraid that the school system will have the same problems Charlotte had when they got rid of their diversity plan. Some fear Wake County schools will become re-segregated and minorities and low-income students will suffer the most.
