Here’s my nominee for column of the weekend, the N&O’s Steve Ford about the Gang of Five now ruining the Wake County School system.
Thanks to the narrow agenda of a slim majority of board members who haven’t taken seriously their responsibility to the whole county, big and troubling changes are under way in a school system that has been seen as one of the nation’s best. The board bosses might not want to hear it, but down the road they won’t be able to say nobody told them. If they care.
They don’t care of course. It is a partisan, ideological crusade not simply a change in direction.
