I thought the school board was nonpartisan. At least I don’t remember seeing party affiliation on the ballot and the paper never made an issue of partisanship when Democrats held the majority. But the headline this morning reads, “Democrats block shuffle of Southeast Raleigh students.”

Will the paper now start identifying the party affiliation of judges and city council members, too? Will the editorial board endorse a return to partisan elections in city, school board, and judicial races?
