Make no mistake, this is a pivotal week for UNC. The Board of Trustees could respect the integrity & judgment of the faculty & administration, or it could let politics rule. Choosing the latter would be damning to an already damaged reputation.
As I commented elsewhere, this should be a no-brainer. The UNC BOG coughed up $2.5 million to a handful of Confederate nutters to "settle" a lawsuit that had not even been filed yet. Making this right won't cost the Trustees a dime.
Inevitably. The NC GOP has joined their counterparts in several other states already by pushing a bill that will make it harder to vote. Whether that is stopped by a Veto or ends up in court remains to be seen, but the battle is happening now.
The Education Justice Alliance said Robinson's task force is unnecessary, saying the "task force would be better served to look at real instances of inequities in our public schools." https://t.co/pKfnCPwd75#nced#ncpol#edjustice
