#BREAKING: @CharMeckSchools Superintendent Dr. Clayton Wilcox to resign Aug. 2
CMS Superintendent Dr. Clayton Wilcox to resign Aug. 2
The resignation comes after the CMS board met at the Government Center to discuss Wilcox‘s contract Friday at 9:30 a.m.
I’m at the CMS special session this AM. Mary McCray opens with a statement emphasizing every employee at CMS has a right to due process, and that the superintendent is not getting special treatment
Before going into closed session, @CharMeckSchools board chair read this statement about due process rights & why they have not been able to elaborate further on the decision to suspend the Superintendent @wsoctv
More than ever, youth need to learn how to *collaborate* to solve civic issues. In recognition of @GenNation's longtime work to educate and engage a new generation of civic leaders, we're thrilled to be nominated for the #civvys, the American Civic Collaboration Award!

Student journalists wanted to highlight the conditions of their crumbling school building. Administrators ordered the video taken down:
Norfolk students filmed a report about their crumbling school. Administrators ordered it deleted.
Poor conditions at the century-old Maury High have been no secret. But top school officials didn't like what a teacher said in a student news report.
Student leaders are taking action to increase social capital, equity, and economic opportunity in our schools and city. Watch their report for #OnTheTableCLT! @FFTC_RCCL @OpportunityCLT @knightfdn @TeamJaneen @CharMeckSchools @HNScharlotte #cltmeckyouth
