CMS

A federal lawsuit alleges Mecklenburg Sheriff’s deputies at the jail failed to take steps to prevent a teen’s suicide, then covered it up. Also, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board votes to fire Supt. Earnest Winston.

The travel mask mandate has been lifted but what’s next? Brett Jensen joins the program to discuss the current state of CMS and what the future will hold when it comes to a new Superintendent.

In the first hour of the show, Vince talks about CMS Superintendent Earnest Winston's plea to parents about the rising number of guns being found in school backpacks, and what could be done to fix the school's problems. 

"Don't leave your politics at the doorstep of the classroom."

WBT reporter Brett Jensen joins Bo Thompson in the studio with audio from Brett's one-on-one interview with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Earnest Winston about so many weapons being found in schools.

"That makes 15 guns since August 25th"

"From what I've been told, this incident does involve two students."

"We're talking about a gun every 3 to 4 days that's being found on a CMS campus."

"I think both schools want this to go away immediately..."

"It appears to be solely a CMS thing."
