Religious and Family Freedom and the Wake County School Board

Thursday, September 06, 2007

I got word yesterday that House Bill 488 was signed by the Governor at the end of August and so now it is state law.

This law makes it possible to discuss the needs of the family at length with a officer chosen by the school board, rather than be forced to attend shotgun meetings of a couple minutes each in front of the school board.

Those who would rather meet with directly a two-member school board panel still have that option depending on whether the school district decides to select a hearing officer or not.

I hope this law fixes at least part of the currently broken re-assignment process which has terrorized parents as they get shredded by the bureaucratic machine that the Wake County School System reassignment hearings have been.
