Jon Pelto: A Historic Victory Over the Education-Industrial Reformers

The Vallas timeline of failure.

My guess is they will appoint him to another position where he is still runs the place, but is not called a “superintendent”.

Other possibilities:
Virtual district superintendent (where his virtual credentials work)
Superintendent (actor) for Truman Show
Superintendent of trash collection college (only because he has so much garbage constantly to clean out)
Superintendent of cowpatty college (see previous)

In this post, Jonathan Pelto assembles a timeline of the stunning court decision to remove Paul Vallas as superintendent of schools of Bridgeport, Connecticut. He includes Vallas’ tenure as superintendent of schools in Chicago, where he was hailed for “saving” the schools and in Philadelphia, where he installed the nation’s most sweeping privatization plan (to that point). Philadelphia and Chicago are now in crisis. Vallas then went on to New Orleans, where he oversaw the almost total privatization of that city’s schools after Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans is hailed by the media as a success but the Recovery School District is the lowest performing district in the state of Louisiana, its top schools skim, and it is propped up by infusions of millions of philanthropic dollars.
