In an earlier post this morning, we detailed how the Coalition of Concerned Citizens for African American Children appears to be a front group for the Wake County Public School System and it's failed socio-economic diversity assignment program.
We detailed how Wake County Public School System computers were used to put together a memo for an upcoming forum hosted by CCCAAC.
Lest you think this was a one time occurrence or we somehow altered the memo, I direct you to the News and Observer and a previous press release that can be found via their blog.
The author is the WCPSS. If it's not, it might as well be.
Who is doing this? Is this being done on work time? Does the Wake County Public School System tacitly condone this?
Wake Community Network would love to know.

Wake County Public School Year Round Plan:
Plan promotes academic achievement for all children
The Coalition of Concerned Citizens for African American Children (CCCAAC) announces its continued support for the reassignment plan proposed by the Wake County Public School System. The plan is consistent with the district’s longstanding commitment to a successful educational experience for all children while supporting a diverse population at each school. The Coalition, many of us educators ourselves, supports the school board’s policy of seeking a balance among schools of students who are eligible for free or reduced priced lunches, students who perform below grade level on End of Grade exams (EOGs), students identified as being Limited English Proficient, students requiring services from Special Education programs, while supporting high academic achievement for all students and maintaining a diverse student population at each WCPSS school.
Wake County enrollment is now the largest in the state of North Carolina. As our school system enrolls thousands of new students each year, and builds new schools to stay current with this growth, reassignment of some students each year is inevitable.
The Coalition is invested in the success of all children and we will always demand excellence for all students. At the same time, we understand that poor and minority students are especially vulnerable when schools fail to offer them the best educational opportunity available. With the current reassignment plan, the school district has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to the wellbeing of all children, the integrity of neighborhoods and the democratic process, and being careful stewards of public dollars.
