Interim super Amber Dixon chucked the old boy doctor system in the district

Mary Pasciak education blogger for the Buffalo News reported  that interim Super Amber Dixon of the Buffalo Schools headed out of town this week to attend a superintendents pow wow in Saratoga Springs....sure enough she bucked the old-boy network system in the district, the ordained know...Dr. so and so and Dr. so and so.
So who did she leave in charge of the Buffalo Schools, while  she went out of town this week? Barbara J. Smith, the chief financial officer.  The CFO's of Buffalo Schools have wielded too much power some say since former Gary M. Crosby who held the titles of both chief financial officer and chief operations officer of the district. Crosby had little formal training in education. Hey, boys the girls can do it just give them a chance, right girls?

"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.
