"This is interesting.

Apparently Mr Roosevelt is not as committed to Pittsburgh as much as he professes!"

An Anonymous also noted a link to an article in the Tribune Review:

- It is also interesting to consider this news about the superintendent applying for another position in February 2009 together with another news article from February 2009, reporting that the superintendent's house had been placed on the market: In that article he stated that listing his house did not reflect on his commitment to Pittsburgh.

So what else is new? Tell us something we don't already know. He has been looking for a new gig ever since he usurped this one. Pittsburgh is only a stepping stone. Unfortunately, he will be moving on to destroy the next school district that might have some HOPE! I say soooooooooo long. Why is it taking sooooooooo long? Perhaps the school board members of these other districts have better common sense than this district does. Perhaps the legislatures of these states have more common sense than our state rep's do. The best thing for our district and our Country is to keep this man from any decision making in education or government. Let FREEDOM ring!!!!!

It won't matter when he leaves, Linda Lane, another Broad Fellow will take his position. The majority of the board are brainwashed and have also taken "Broad training"

I am afraid this is a runaway train.

Dr. Lane has been a teacher.

True, but she is part of "The Broad Effect"

Google it.

I can think of another "Assistant Superintendent" who would be much, much worse than Linda Lane. I tend to think Linda would be a welcomed change from the past three superintendents.

A little humor to start the day:

In an effort to add diversity to the workforce, five cannibals were hired by a large urban school district. During the welcoming ceremony, the Superintendent said, “You’re part of our team now. You can earn merit pay and career ladder bonuses here. You can go to the cafeteria to eat so please don’t trouble any of the other employees.”

The cannibals promised. Four weeks later the Superintendent returned and said, “You’re all working very hard and I’m satisfied with all of you. However, one of our custodians has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to him?” The cannibals all shook their heads no.

After the boss left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, “ Ok, which of you ate the custodian?” A hand rose hesitantly, to which the leader replied, “You fool! For four weeks we’ve been eating Assistant Superintendents, PELAS, Chief Academic Officers, Supervisors and Coordinators, and no one noticed a thing. YOU had to go and eat the custodian!”
