WAKE SCHOOLS: IDEOLOGICAL BIGOTRY

Over the last few months it's been interesting to see several news headlines appear. 

Let's run through them:

Fair Enough. If something doesn't work, don't do it. But that's not the driving reason here. It's just that the concept of police officers and school suspensions doesn't meet with the ideological bent of the Wake County School System. 

Case in point? A recent article about busing for diversity:



"Now some are suggesting a way to reduce school closings because of inclement weather: break up the system.

WRAL - OPEN BIAS

We'll give Jim Goodmon and Capitol Broadcasting credit. They're open in their ideological bias.
