But where? Chapel Hill-Carrboro has never had a magnet school, but rapid growth is occasioning a new elementary school in the district. Whenever a new school is built, the board examines its programs and its service and considers how to do a better job. But the magnet school proposal could involve moving hundreds of kids around and upsetting parents in the process. Wed, 16 May 2012 14:51:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Susan Davis 4750 at http://wunc.org
