Accreditation agency will visit Wake schools next month - Education - NewsObserver.com

So this week's cliffhanger, instead, is: Will Ron and his friends terminate this important relationship? Or will they put all Wake students in jeopardy of not being accepted to top tier universities or having to 'splain the whole mess to admissions counselors elsewhere?

Stay tuned!
Splain is the key thing and they can't at this point pull off an orderly withdrawal from the process. The school that could really suffer is Enloe.

Why Enloe?

Wouldn't any school with students going to college (top tier or not) similarly suffer?

And to think...the folks who voted for him simply were tired of their kids being either redistricted due to growth in their area or b/c their schools were over capacity and their kids had to travel further to the nearest school with availability. I don't think anyone wanted this train wreck to happen! It will be a happy day when we see the back of these folks' heads as they walk away from our school system.

Another cliffhanger...accreditation group says no to conditions. Now it's in Wake's court to withdraw or not. The accreditation group says they've never worked with any system so difficult...

Isn't Enloe a target for considerable redistricting if they send students back to their home school? Years ago there was a provision with accreditation that a change of I believe 25% or more in student population due to redistricting could require a revised status/progress report from the association. Enloe has a national reputation and if accreditation is pulled along with a significant change in test scores that could really impact them in college admissions. Let their SAT scores drop several hundred points with no accreditation and the question becomes what is left of a quality education program.

I truly can believe they feel that way and can understand why. They are not dealing with educators but rather disgruntled elected officials.

Yes. Reason #4,597,234 why school board members should be educators (who have a clue what accreditation is any why it exists). Maybe if we told them "your boss's boss from corporate headquarters would like to come in an review everyone, and wants to make sure this office is running according to corporate bylaws, standards, and policies."

If they weren't following our new superintend selection would have done it. Considering he has a national commentary profile and he came from DC and the probably asked folks in DC about him and got the same answer I did.

Either educators or folks with a history of working with schools as parents or community members. That way you have something to evaluate them on other than their ability to say NO! After saying no what next? I think folks are finding out from this board that their isn't much to follow.

God no - the industry is incestuous enough.
