A judge who threatened to shut down 19 low performing schools, including six in Eastern Carolina, says he is seeing improvements.
At a hearing Friday in Raleigh, Superior Court Judge Howard Manning says he is pleased with the progress our state has made in reforming its poor schools. He did, however, warn he could still close schools if he sees inadequate improvement.
In March he said he would close the 19 schools unless state officials made changes to improve them.
Schools in Washington, Wayne and Bertie Counties were named.
