How many Tea Party members does it take to screw up the Wake school board? Just jokin' with ya, Papa Ron.
But seriously, last year it was Johnny Tedesco on the TP circuit. This year, school board hopeful Heather Losurdo took the stage to declare that the Wake school system is keeping kids from reaching their full potential by, uh — well, she didn't say how, but I know she didn't mean that it's because they go to school with "those" kids.
Still, I can't argue with Losurdo's platform, "Strong communities equal strong schools." In fact, isn't that what the other side is saying when they argue that, without diversity in student assignments, "Impoverished communities equal impoverished schools?"
