The Wake County Taxpayers Association, a nonprofit organization focused on monitoring government spending, is calling for the group that accredits the county’s schools to conduct an investigation into the firing of former superintendent Anthony Tata, the Raleigh News & Observer reported last week.
The taxpayers association railed against the board for not having a public hearing before announcing that Tata would no longer be superintendent, and for leaving the district leaderless, the News & Observer reports.
The association had filed a series of complaints about the board’s management and asked for an investigation.
The district’s current status is “advised,” the newspaper reports, an improvement over the “warned” status it had after the first investigation.
