that leads to destruction..." (Matthew 7:13, KJV)
It looks like both Los Angeles and Chicago are joining the Broad superintendents' club:
- John Deasy, Broad class of 2006, will be leading the Los Angeles Public Schools coming there from--wait for it--the Gates Foundation (he was brought into LAUSD two years ago with the expectation that he would take over, 'though it appears that not all are happy with that).
- Jean-Claude Brizard, Broad class of 2007, will be leading the Chicago Public Schools, leaving Rochester, NY, where the teachers overwhelmingly voted "no confidence" (by ballot) this past February. As this due largely, it seems, to an autocratic, non-consultative manner, one holds little hope that parents in Chicago will feel any more listened to than they currently do.
