Delaware’s Head of the Department of Education has 3 years teaching experience. That should be no surprise to you. It is relatively old news.
Based on our state’s success, New York City is trying the same approach. In charge of all New York City’s Public Schools, overseeing 135,000 public employees, is now a fresh faced 27 year old hired as a “special assistant” in 2010.
In less than 30 months his salary will rise from $75,000 to over $200,000….
He is a 2007 graduate from Ryder. He worked with several charter schools in New York City before earning a master’s degree in public policy and administration from Columbia in 2010…
He is a member of the reform group “Education Pioneers” Education Pioneers aims to transform education into the best led and managed sector in the U.S. economy…Education Pioneers plans to recruit 10,000 leaders and managers by 2023, and connect the leaders in our network with high-impact leadership roles in key organizations across the education sector.
Translated: their job is to bust unions.
One can’t help but notice that these two leaders of two respective departments of education share in age, a similarity with Kim Jong-un, leader of North Korea..
One cannot see either of them working well.
