A dispute over school bus assignments has sparked a racial, economic and class debate in Wake County, N.C. Back in 2000, the district adopted a policy to bus students to outside neighborhoods based on the students' socio-economic backgrounds. But, last night, the school board abandoned the policy. Dave Dewitt, an education reporter for North Carolina Public Radio, has been covering the issue for more than four years. Patrice Lee is a local parent who was opposed to the bus reform.
