Not everyone is laughing at Colbert's take on Wake County Schools

Governor Bev Perdue says she was “unhappy” when she saw  the recent spoof on the “disintegration” [1] of Wake County Schools by Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert.

During a meeting Thursday with the News & Record [2] editorial board, the governor suggested the national attention the school board has received could adversely impact the recruitment of new jobs to the state.

If you’re a business leader, you don’t want to come to an area where schools are in disarray.”
