Monday, September 8, 2008Click here for video of meeting to dismiss school superintendent.
Rudy Crew was one of the guests that shared information on best practices for urban school districts just recently in Nashville.
Just three days later comes word from Education Week that Rudy Crew has indeed been dismissed.
Four years after the Miami-Dade County, Fla., school board waged an intense campaign to woo and win a nationally renowned superintendent, Rudolph F. Crew, it has ousted him from his job on a wave of criticism about his management style and financial acumen.
In a meeting Sept. 10, the school board of the nation’s fourth-largest district decided to buy out the remaining two years of Mr. Crew’s contract for $368,000 in salary and benefits.
Surely, Johnson's not thinking that Crew would be a good replacement for Garcia? We don't need an education rock star personality to head the MNPS. We desperately need a hard worker, willing to put the children, and not their career, first. We don't need anyone with an eye already on their next book sale or their speaker's fee willing to make our children the next notch in their resume belt.
No. Please no.
