He said data shows the number of homes sold in Wake County actually rose in this first quarter compared to the previous year. Some opponents have said new home buyers were concerned about where their students would attend school and were bypassing Wake County.
Tata said the figures show the school choice plan is not having an adverse affect on home sales.
Meanwhile, Tata said the final assignment plan will be sent home with students Tuesday.
