WCPSS Hires Single “Office Of Equity Affairs” Staff For $125k

Wake County Public Schools has hired someone for the new “Office of Equity Affairs”.

You read that correctly, “Office of Equity Affairs”.

The office’s budget is an annual $204,846, The title of the role there is Assistant Superintendent and is being filled by Rodney Trice with a base salary being $125,000. Let’s think about the optics here:

Teachers haven’t seen their raises yet.
The Wake County School Board, along with Superintendent Merrill, want to hike taxes to pay for their own county’s teacher raises.

Occupy Monday Agenda Would Cost $7 Billion To Fund

The Occupy Monday movement led by Defacto leader of the NC Democrats have been making a lot of demands. Bigger government intrusion, more spending, and desires for items without a thought to the budget North Carolina has to work with.

Barber describes these demands as his “Five Point Moral Framework”. Don’t be drinking anything when you read the list below.

Secure pro-labor, anti-poverty policies that ensure economic sustainability
Provide well-funded public education for all
Promote healthcare for all, including affordable access, the expansion of Medicaid, women’s health and environmental justice in every community
Address the inequalities in the criminal justice system and ensure equality under the law for every person regardless of race, class, creed, documentation or sexual preference
Protect and expand voting rights, immigrant rights, women’s rights, LGBT rights and equal protection under the law
In a nutshell, the same demands made by Occupy Wall Street. Broad and vague with absolutely no specifics. That is a feature, not a bug in the design.

Rev. Barber’s demands would effectively erase all strides made to close the budget shortfall left behind by former Goveror Perdue. The demands add up to roughly $7 billion according to Senator Phil Berger’s office. See the statement to the press below: Continue reading

Everyone’s been paying attention to the annual “White Privilege” conference in Madison, Wisconsin. They’re also focused on Dr. Pook – the Common Core Standards contributor who claimed his reason for working on the standards was his “White Privilege”.
