Wake County Board of Education members were facing recall threats after firing the superintendent. However, recalls aren't allowed:
No counties in the state have recall provisions, and only one school system – Chapel Hill-Carrboro – has a recall provision.
Many cities do, however, including Raleigh, Durham, Carrboro and Chapel Hill.
A recall provision has to be approved by the General Assembly. So McLean pointed out that even if some parents went to Wake County legislators asking for such a provision, it would not be considered until next year.
