Rudy Crew as Michael Jordan? We Think Not
In explaining his reason for giving Rudolph "Rudy" Crew a $41,000 bonus, Miami-Dade School Board Member Robert Ingram compared Superintendent Rudolph Crew to Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest professional basketball player in modern history. I beg to differ. Producing 26 F schools doesn't come close to winning six world championships. Crew is more like the Michael Jordan who tried to play professional baseball, only to fail miserably in the minor leagues. Ingram's analogy is a lame justification to award Crew any more taxpayer money for his putrid job performance and his scandalous administration. --Francisco Alvarado
