Knickers twisted; schools closed Wednesday. I had to sleep on this news tidbit, but after mulling it over, I believe the proper response for any parent living in Chapel Hill or Carrboro would be to call your local private or charter school and see if there are any openings, or a waiting list, or something. Homeschool if you can pull off the time and dedication. Or sell your house and move out of the city limits to a school district that won’t put up with this nonsense. Or rent your house out to 6-10 UNC students looking to live off-campus if you can’t sell fast enough. You could march in protest in front of the school board with your kids on Wednesday, but you probably have to work and have to save your protesting time for the weekends.
