Char-Meck Reforms Continue

Yesterday’s CLT Observer reports the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board appaorved a series of drastic cuts in an effort to “regain the public trust” before asking voters to approve another bond package. See article here.  

“Board member Vilma Leake said the community is too willing to spend more on prisons than education. And Tom Tate said a first-rate education is worth the money.

Tate said his job was “not to be money-saver, but an education advocate,” according to the article. 

Says the article, Trent Merchant said CMS helps more students by stretching dollars. And Kaye McGarry said the cuts wouldn’t harm instruction, and could build support for the bond.

“We have to bring the trust and credibility back to the school board,” she said to the Observer.

Wow…what a novel concept. Trust and credibility to the school board. Wow…

E.C. 🙂
