After Thursday’s rant comparing Arne Duncan to the smooth talker who stood California up on our last date, it looks like we’re going to forgive him and try again. The best part is that Superintendent Garcia is apparently on the committee that will be writing the state’s application. Does that mean there’s something in it for SFUSD if the application is successful? I have no idea.
Anyway, Carlos’ participation on the committee doesn’t change the way I feel about this whole competition — that it is ill-conceived and may in fact be harmful to our schools in the long run.
