Re: “Tedesco: No Wake schools coup planned—yet

Before you assume everything is racist, and THE MAN is just trying to keep everybody down. You need to take a breath and try to remember small schools in small neighborhoods. If you didn't grow up this way, you missed out. I went to a small, neighborhood school. 300 kids total. K - 8. The Principal and every teacher there knew my name, and my parents name. When there were problems it was on a much smaller and more manageable level. Our School Board and County Commissioners, in their wisdom, started making bigger schools and closing the smaller ones. They said it would give the students more opportunities. Now we have kids who get more opportunities to get into trouble and lost in the system. No one cares about one when you have 2000 to deal with. Smaller, Neighborhood schools will work better. And it is easier to get involved and help. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY or BUSING will make a child learn. It takes teachers who know their students and PARENTS who are willing to help. If it is about who gets more support and money into the schools, that is up to school board and that is an elected body that answers to the voters.
