Klein Resigns; Teachers Win!

I heard it first, quite appropriately, from my school's secretary.  It was 4pm, and I ran around telling all of the other teachers.

We sarcastically exclaimed, "We did it!  It's over!"

Of course, that's not true.  Instead, Bloomberg named Cathie Black the new chancellor, chairman of Hearst Magazines and one of Forbes 100 most powerful women.

Perfect!  Nobody could be more appropriate to run the largest school system in the country than somebody who knows nothing about schools and might have a larger corporate-reform mindset than Klein.  I initially thought the guy who sits in the staff parking lot at my school and collects a dollar from everyone to ensure their cars don't get broken into might apply for the position, BUT he probably knows more about schools than Cathie Black so.... it's apparently a no go.

  1. If parking lot guy would be willing to publish teachers names and rankings in the papers, close schools, starve other until they have to be closed, fire teachers and break the union, Bloomberg will consider hiring him!

  2. Yeah, that's true. And parking-lot guy might consider it, but I think he mostly just likes saying good morning to people.

  3. Maybe Cathie Black will be good. Sure, she doesn't have a clue about education but she did help publish Seventeen and Cosmopolitan. That's gotta count for something.

  4. Yeah, I'm sure you'll start seeing high school course offerings such as "10 Ways That Shows He's Interested In You" and "The Aesthetics of Justin Beiber". That way you she can help change the curriculum in the schools AND boost magazine subscriptions.

  5. Sadly, lodesterre, Bloomberg actually said that nobody knows more about what our kids will need for the 21st century than a woman like Cathie Black.
