In 2010, accrediting group AdvancED, the parent organization of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, initiated a review of Wake County Board of Education policies. The NC chapter of the NAACP complained that the center-right board majority wanted to resegregate Wake County’s public schools, which was enough to prompt an investigation by AdvancED.
Now, a center-left majority board tossed out its African-American chairman, Keith Sutton, in a vote that went along racial lines. Many African-American leaders in Wake County are angered by the decision.
Has Mark Elgart, President and CEO, AdvancED, deployed a Special Review Team yet? If not, I would like to know when he plans to do so.
