Still protesting Cathie Black? "None of this going to change the outcome..."
Chancellor to be Cathie Black spoke out on Friday told the media the secretive process the Mayor Bloomberg used to select her "irrelevant" to the groups protesting and criticizing her back door appointment.
She told the NYDaily news , she had three words for her critics: "Let's go forward. None of this is going to change the outcome..."
Never mind nearly 12,000 signed a petition protesting her clandestine appointment, the rallies, protests, and the polls indicating not only the people of NYC, but most parents would prefer to have someone from the field of education at the helm of the NYC schools.
Her response typical of someone who spent most of her life in a corporation where shared decision-making found in educational institutions foreign to the still would be chancellor demoted herself in June as President of the Hearst magazines to one with less responsibilities.
She managed 2,000 at Hearst and Bloomberg calls her a "world class manager" ready to take on one of the largest public school systems in the nation with a $23 billion dollar budget, 80,000 employees, 1,400 schools, and absolutely no background in public education or the management of schools.
"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
