An appeal in Wake to ‘place our children first’

Feb. 1, 2011

Our commitment is to a student assignment plan that strengthens student achievement, not weakens it. That strengthens communities, not weakens them. That strengthens parental involvement, not weakens it. These are, again, goals shared by every member of our board, and every citizen of good will in Wake County. It is my hope that the ongoing conversation will be constructive, and place our children first.”
