Denlinger: Before filling his shoes….

The Wake County school board will resume its discussion next Tuesday about the fate of Superintendent Del Burns. Dr. Burns, who recently announced plans to depart the post June 30th, has been accused by some board members of undermining their authority.

Dr. Ann Denlinger of the Wake Education Partnership says it’s clear to her that Burns “fell on his sword” to take a stand against those who hope to end the school system’s socio-economic diversity policy.

This weekend on “News and Views” with Chris Fitzsimon, Denlinger shares her thoughts about the ongoing fray and discusses what qualities are critical to running a quality school system.
