Going to tonight’s Board of Education meeting? Better bring a snack

A few months ago, when the Mint Hill high school boundaries were being decided, more than 30 people signed up to speak during public comments. At tonight’s meeting, there are 66 signed up to speak regarding the Myers Park school boundaries. There are also 12 people signed up to speak during the “Requests from the Public” portion of the meeting, most of whom are from Mint Hill. Julie Parsons, who has spearheaded the effort to grandfather students into the high schools as the boundaries shift in the next two years, sent the Mint Hill Times a copy of her speech she will present to the Board. You can read it in this week’s Mint Hill Times out Thursday. Those signed up to speak tonight:REQUESTS FROM THE PUBLIC

  1. These people should have known that they would waste their time if they had watched the news or read about the last rezoning meetings from the ‘No Mint Hill High School’ plan. The current CMS BOE (while they last) has their own social engineering agenda. They do not care if the outcome is not what is best for communities. CMS should be broken up by Raleigh and re-org’ed into many smaller, district zoned organizations each with its’ own BOE and funded by taxes from that area. I’d pay more! People would then go to the school where they live – and pay accordingly. Can’t pay? Too bad, move. The current socialist system is ruining many neighborhood property values. As flight from these communities increases, watch how many schools change into Title One schools (the new No Mint Hill High School will open as one – sheesh!). There goes the neighborhood …
