Local officials will meet in Cary this morning to discuss Wake County's education system.It's no secret that there are a lot of parents who are routinely frustrated with Wake's school system's policies.

"They continue to propose short term solutions for long term problems," one parent told Eyewitness News.

The issues are annual school reassignment to ease overcrowding, busing students across the county to meet the district's socio-economic diversity policy and the ever contentious traditional versus year-round calendar debate.

Cary is hosting an interactive forum called "the Climate for Student Success."

All of the hot topics are expected to get the attention to officials who will be present.

The event is being held at the Cary Town Hall from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is being paid for with taxpayer dollars. The total is $7,000 and is not open to the public.

As a result, some town council members are trying to privately raise money to off-set coasts. One member already contributed $750.
