No Bad Schools In Raleigh
I saw Gerald Grant's "Hope and Despair in the American City: Why There Are No Bad Schools in Raleigh" advertised on the American Prospect's webpage, and felt proud. As I've mentioned before, that's the school system that produced me. If this reviewer comment is accurate, I agree with the author: "The difference is that in Raleigh, in 1976, the Wake County Public School system was created to zone the suburbs and inner city together to ensure a continued healthy mix of social classes."
