“Resegregation by another name”

Now through Jan.25, Wake County parents can take an online survey on whether they prefer the year-round calendar or the traditional calendar at their child’s school.  But parents and students aren’t the only ones eyeing the outcome of this survey and other issues.

John Dornan, Executive Director of the Public School Forum of North Carolina, says observers around the country are anxiously waiting to see what’s left when Wake County dismantles its student assignment diversity plan.

Dornan worries the return to neighborhood school assignment patterns will cluster low-income, minority students in low-income urban schools cheating many students out of a sound, basic education.
