    Is June trying to make a comeback after being relegated to the bench by Governor Perdue ?

    Wrong Alex. Atkinson prevailed mightily against Perdue when a judge ruled July 17, 2009 that Perdue’s move was unconstitutional. http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=news/local&id=6920166

    Of course I knew that greggie. I was referring to the earlier days when Bev tried to “silence ” her on the state scene with the other appointment. Don’t you get tired of always trying to correct someone on this site ? Bev always thought she was a lightweight which is pretty darn funny.

    Wrong again Alex. Atkinson is as tough as nails. The people who know her know that, including Bev Perdue.

    Wrong again greg ! Most political insiders will disagree with your assessment ! June presided over a very mediocre period for public schools with low graduation rates, low national ranking, and poor testing scores.

    Alex you are spouting utter bull. Under Atkinson graduation rates have risen to their highest on record, up from 68% in 2006 to 83% in 2013.

    Rates were extremely low in her earlier years, and recent testing scores indicate very little if any progress for our public schools.
