Carvalho Gets the Contract
So, the School Board ratified Albert Carvalho's superintendent contract, but only for two years, not the expected three. Still though, it's amazing that he got the contract at all after a panel found his hiring unethical and that whole alleged affair with The Herald's ex-education reporter. Especially since no one has fully explained what's so great about this guy that we should ignore all of that and put him in charge of the fourth biggest school district in the country.
I wish it was like the stock market or The Miami Hurricanes and we could watch it crumble before our eyes and tell ourselves "it's ok, we have to bottom out before we rebuild," but we're talking about an organization responsible for the education of 385,655 students. So here's hoping Carvalho's hire was worth it. The pressure's on, buddy, don't screw it up.
