Yeah, something a bit local, which I do not do much of, but, anyhow, let’s put this in context: Republicans had captured control of the Wake County School Board, and looked to do a few things, which included doing away with “diversity” busing all over the county (which was really based on economic diversity rather than race), pushing for more local schooling, and reducing all the constantly changing school assignments. Then, Democrats regained control, and immediately fired the guy in charge of making things happen, Tony Tata, for no reason other than the Dems didn’t like him. So, now their is no school superintendent. What to do, what to do?
(WRAL) Nearly four months after firing Tony Tata, the Wake County Board of Education on Tuesday took the first step toward finding a new superintendent to lead North Carolina’s biggest school district by hiring a search firm.
The board approved a motion to hire Omaha, Neb.-based McPherson & Jacobson, LLC, a move that will cost the school system about $45,000. Details of the firm’s bid to lead the search were not made available Tuesday.
First of all, they couldn’t spend that money on a North Carolina company? Second of all, imagine what $45k could have done for the school system. Just another case of elected officials, particularly Democrats, making decisions that waste taxpayer dollars.
