I witnessed about two hours of yesterday’s six-hour Wake County School Board meeting. A couple of observations….
I noticed lots of teachers. Several rows of seated teachers were already present forty-five minutes before the meeting began. They had to arrive pretty early to get there….Gosh, aren’t there classes to teach?
I also noticed lots of students — in attendance and also registered as speakers. By far the biggest crowd came from Enloe High School who were there in support of Enloe ‘s magnet school status. Most Enloe students were sporting yellow T-shirts with the school’s name across the front. I find it hard to believe that students were not getting the majority of their information from teachers and administration. I also wonder how many of these kids show up, practically in uniform, with prepared comments for a 3 P.M. meeting? Three calls to Enloe High School provided no additional information on whether students who attended the meeting were given special dismissals.
