Solutions that don’t break the bank, reinvent the wheel or marginalize our teachers are within our grasp. We could have rigorous classes, safe and disciplined schools and treat teachers like valued colleagues rather than easily replaceable cogs, and we could do so tomorrow if we wanted.

Notice who isn't shilling for Vitti to stay? Teachers and parents.
Today it was an op ed in the Times Union by the charter loving president of CSX Micheal Ward and Sunday it will be the head of the Jax chamber Danial Davis shilling for an extension of superintendent Vitti's contract a decision the board doesn't have to make till December. We can add the Times Union to the list because I know they have gotten at least one letter (ahem) saying how ridiculous it is to extend his contract so soon but instead went with the pro Vitti letters.
Did you notice who is not shilling for him to stay? Parents and teachers.
I am not saying the board should just jettison him but why don't we let it play out some? Why don't we see where we are at the end of the school year? Why the rush.
