Wake County school board to discuss federal legislative issues

The Wake County school board’s government relations committee will tackle federal issues at today’s meeting.

The committee is scheduled to review the National School Boards Association’s federal legislative priorities, which include increasing federal education funding, eliminating the sanctions that No Child Left Behind imposes on schools and rejecting the use of federal funds for private school vouchers.

The committee will also discuss contacting the National School Boards Association and members of the North Carolina’s congressional delegation.

The committee meeting will come after the full school board and Wake County Board of Commissioners held a joint meeting today where their state legislative agenda will have been discussed.
