Great Schools in Wake group denounces unfounded attack on public schools

The good folks at GSIW are out with an excellent statement this afternoon that rightfully denounces a local right-wing pundit for his false statements about the Wake County schools. Here’s the lead:

Raleigh, NC—August 18, 2010— The Great Schools in Wake Coalition (GSIW) and its more than 11,000 members take issue with claims made by private school supporters that our public schools are both “unpopular” and a “failure.” This false attack, repeated by a conservative pundit in a recent televised debate and endorsed by members of the School Board’s narrow majority, appears part of an orchestrated plan to discredit and undermine the award-winning Wake County Public School System.
