According to the new report on the Wake County public schools conducted by the accreditation group AdvancED,

The Special Review Visit should have occurred prior to October 15, 2010 however the Board of Education and system leadership resisted scheduling the visit. Specifically, the Board chair, interim superintendent, and legal counsel to the system expressed their belief in a letter dated January 13, 2011 that the actions and decisions of the Board of Education have no influence or impact on the quality of education being offered in the high schools.” (Emphasis supplied).

    their personal experiences rather than relying on objective data and evidence reflecting the
    system as a whole.”
