Wake County Goes to Hell

Record #:
The Wake County School system is in crisis. Many are worried that the new conservative members of the school board will have a negative effective on the system. Superintendent Del Burns has resigned and the new majority is planning to eliminate diversity as a factor in student assignments, adopting a strict neighborhood schools approach. This would be a change in philosophy that started in 1976 and might increase segregation by race and class in Wake County Schools.
