Public sessions on Wake superintendent search begin Monday

Posted March 25, 2013

— The public can give its input beginning Monday about what it want in a new Wake County school superintendent.

Monday's forum in Cary, sponsored by search firm McPherson and Jacobson, marks the first of three days and evenings of public input from business leaders, elected officials and student and parent groups.

The Board of Education fired Tony Tata in September and the school system is under interim leadership by Stephen Gainey while they look for a permanent replacement.

The board has said they hope to make a hire by July 1.

The schedule for the public meetings is as follows:

    What's the point? If the school board decides on someone who actually cares about education and our children, the first time a disagreement arises the school board will fire them. Of course there will have to be much media coverage.

    Please get us left winged ultra liberal so the current school board will feel warm and fuzzy.
