Wake School Board Passes Plan

The Wake County School Board has voted to adopt a new student assignment policy.

The new student assignment policy replaces one that re-assigned thousands of students. It moved some them based on family income, so that no school included too high a percentage of low-income students.

The new policy has no such control. It's a choice plan with four stated pillars - stability, choice, proximity, and student achievement. Opponents of the plan wanted stronger assurances that high-poverty, low-achieving schools would not be created.

The new plan passed on a bipartisan vote. It could still be altered, if democrats take over the majority after a run-off election next month.
