Watch Margiotta’s flip flop on high-poverty schools

What a difference three weeks makes if you are Wake School Board Chair Ron Margiotta.  In his prepared remarks before the July 20th school board meeting Margiotta said,

This board does not intend to create high-poverty, low performing schools…

Sounds pretty clear. And he even repeated it for emphasis. Then at the August 10 meeting just three weeks later, as parent Susan Evans reminded him that he had said publicly he won’t create high poverty schools, Margiotta whispers into his open mike,

I never said that.

Watch for yourself and listen carefully for Margiotta’s whispered denial of his own words just three weeks earlier.
