Del Burns gave an interview today to News 14. It's about 13:00 -- well worth your time. He couldn't implement the policies adopted by the new school board majority in good conscience, and he saw worse coming if they dismantle diversity. He's never seen politics on the school board like he's seen it over the last 10 weeks.

Update: WRAL interviewed him too. So far, only a short summary is online. The money quote: "I think the potential is here for a change that will result in segregating rich schools and poor schools in the Wake County Public School System," he said. "And that concerns me greatly."
