“I think it’s really important to keep healthy schools and diverse schools,” she said. “Our children deserve that. We do not need to have schools where everybody looks the same. We need diversity.”
“Magnet schools are what I would call awesome choices,” said Hartenstine, who sent one of her two children to a Wake magnet school. “It’s about choice. We have families today who want choice in their school and there’s no reason that they have to leave the public school arena to have choice.”
