Boston May Have Hired Another Problem

Posted May 6th, 2019 by Iron Mike

Folks, when somebody goes from running a system with 837,000 students to running a troubled system of just 55,000 students – in a crime-ridden Democrat town,  – you just gotta ask “Why the big step back?”

At RRB we wish all the best for both Dr. Cassellius and the trouble-plagued BPS System;  – but after an expensive nation-wide search,…why this lady?  Did race play a factor – again?

    It’s said one picture is worth a thousand words. Given Massachusetts governments’ apparent penchants for stupidity, who knows what the selection criteria was.

    But consider this. As Education Commissioner of Minnesota, overseeing the education of 837,000 students, the position paid around $150,000 a year. (Imagine that…..) As the new Boston School Superintendent, overseeing the education of only 55,000 students, Dr. Cassellius will earn more than $250,000 a year. (Imagine that!) A pretty good move on her part, and I say good for her. And with her experience with 837,000 moldable minds, she should come with a boat load of ideas.

    So I’ll concede she comes with credentials. In any event, let’s hope so, and also hope she doesn’t get run over by teacher unions along the way. For Boston’s sake….

    Mike, Brenda took the Boston Superintendent position because it pays more ($280,000) versus her old job ($150,000).
