Carolina School Reorg

Plans for the deaf and blind schools in North Carolina are up in the air. Lawmakers want one of three schools closed, but the state education department is going to counter-propose that the school's leadership be consolidated to save more than $5 million a year. That would leave the schools pretty much running as they are. The Governor Morehead School for the Blind would come under the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf, but Morehead would keep its name and students.
