    Why do I think they graduate 3000+ students a year, therefore making it only about a 2,000 delta?

    I think they are lying again for the sake of doing so.

    It's all about the money.

    you bet that money went in good ole boy Del's pocket! To heck with the kids or REAL education in wake county, we just need busing so the dumb kids can be spread out to help even out test scores!

    Yea, the enrollment will be up. Schools will get more students than growth and planning projected for -- however, the schools won't get the money that budget took after the 10th day that leave schools in a financial shortfall. Or maybe the money they took from my school went into the pocket of our fearless superintendent. Hummm ---
