A Public Conversation On Student Assignment

Student assignment has become a hot topic as Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools continues the process of drawing new attendance zones for schools. The ongoing conversation over pupil assignment has raised tensions, emotions and heated debate in the community and on the school board. Charlotte Talks hosted a special public conversation about school assignment Wednesday night at McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square. We heard from school board members, concerned parents, and from members of the community. You can hear the full discussion and questions and comments from the audience here. 

Web Extra: After the broadcast portion of the show, the program continued with more questions and comments from the audience. Listen here:
