A Tony Tata time line: From military to Wake schools to NC transportation

The name of Anthony J. Tata, a retired brigadier general, became a familiar one in Wake County starting in December 2010, when the county school board named him superintendent of the 150,000-student school system. Known as Tony Tata, he achieved significant change in several areas, but ultimately got the boot from the Democratic-led board in September 2012, following widespread problems with the school bus system.
