Secession and Separate Schools in Charlotte, N.C.



Nothing is unique about the drive for separate school systems in suburban Shelby County, as this story from the Charlotte Observer shows. Charlotte-Mecklenburg has a consolidated school system that is considering three finalists for superintendent, including Kriner Cash.

The Charlotte Observer editorialized against secession Monday. It's reminiscent of the "tiny towns" story in Memphis and Shelby County some 15 years ago.

Cash and the other two finalists were interviewed last week. Representatives of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools met with the Transition Planning Commission in December.
