Critics argue many of the changes are unnecessary and will create re-segregated, high-poverty schools. "In some respects, we were able to get some kids into schools that were closer to their homes and neighborhoods, but in doing so we created some situations where we have increased poverty levels at some of the schools," said Keith Sutton, a member of the Wake County School Board. "So that's going to present more challenges to the administration and students there."
