A Change in Heart

Record #:
Durham City Schools and Durham County schools are considering a merger. Members from the task force in charge of reviewing the merger share what they have learned and how the facts have changed them. Many members who were first opposed to the merger are now open to the idea and are beginning to talk to others about what changed their minds. The city schools are primarily African-American and poor, while the county schools are primarily white and wealthier. The merging of the two schools would save money and would improve the quality of education for the city schools.
