    well, I found the address look-up for our base school for next year and we're in the reassigned area and it's...not very good. Doesn't really make a whole lot of sense other than they have to fill all the rolesville schools, so it's covering a huge area geographically.
    Not complaining since it'll be changed again the following year, but still seems really off.

    My parents paid for my education and were involved, I took care and paid for my children and was involved. We did not expect someone else to pay our way

    and parents today pay for their childrens "education, bussing, breakfast, snaks, & lunch" when they pay their property taxes!!!

    It is past time for the school system to be run by "private Business". the nonsence will be ended, a private will take control and the whinning will be over.- pappybigtuna1

    Like privately run prisons that have higher ‘incident rates’ and their customers…err inmates just happen to stay much much longer than government run prisons and have a higher cost per person. BTW, how are those private DMV offices doing again….

    the focus is on the parents, what will make them happy; IT IS NOT ON EDUCATION OF THE CHILDREN

    If the children were put in a shack in a swamp, they would learn it is the parents complaining and belly acking

    What you won't do for yourself you won't do for your children either

    Hey pappy have you seen the news lately... I recall two private schools closing in the middle of the night and one charter school board that framed the headmaster because he wouldnt go along... private is not alwasy better

    OH.... and who paid for the "mothers milk' when you were in school?

    The waste will end, education will begin. Thhe parent will be responsible for their own child, no more cry baby parents.

    This is about education, not bussing, breakfast, snaks, & lunch

    Tired of supplying mothers milk to all these belly acking parents

    the 1,500 is a lie... when you require mangnet 6th and 9th graders to reapply then you are reassigning the children not allowed to continue on in the program

    I think the entire board needs to be voted out when their term comes up. Being able to vote only for the election in your district is nonsense. Everyone should be able to vote in when all board seats come up for re-election. If not break up the County wide system. Leaving this as is is nothing short of madness.

  • NiceNSmooth Nov 14, 10:06 a.m.

    The board members are trying to cap popular schools so that it will force parents to think we need more schools built and pass the bond!!!

    I thought I saw the article had said people could look up their base school / reassignment on wednesday, but it looks like it was removed. We may live in the area mentioned for reassignment and we just moved to this neighborhood, so we're looking to get some answers...

  • Honesty first Nov 14, 9:02 a.m.

    Goldman needs to resign. She all of a sudden is concerned about reassigment of 1,500 students potentially. Where was her concern over the students who could not go the school in their own neighborhood with her "Choice Plan". I can assure you it was many more than the number that may be impacted now.She needs to realize that she was not qualified to be NC Auditor nor is she qualified to be on the school board. Just stay home and quit calling the police with your made up situations. She is a disgrace.

    This is probably the lowest number of reassigned kids that has taken place in many many many years. For perhaps the first time in ever a Dem controlled board is not stirring the assignment pot as if it is a butter churn. It remains to be seen whether they will desist from returning to their old racist busing by skin color skin. Hopefully they will not.

  • Screw WrAl Nov 14, 8:10 a.m.

    Do not be fooled by this board people, the reassignment number might be low next year, but the following year all that goes out the window. The estimate is for twenty thousand to be reassigned in 2014-2015. This board continues to use deception as their main ingredient to the destruction of our school system and you guys are letting them get away with it. But that's your choice isn't it.

    Too bad your children will pay the price.
