Scott Shine who last sumer while running said we need more charter schools had some interesting, i.e. disturbing quotes, on the Mike the Teacher blog. http://www.miketheteacher.com/conversation-with-scott-shine/
...the main reasons (to extend Vitti's contract) were “we need stability in the Superintendent’s chair”, “If we fire him, who’s going to be better?” and “We hope [Dr. Vitti] can develop into a great leader” — that the Board wanted to give him a chance to do so.
Um, the board hopes he can develop into a great leader?!? So the board is just experimenting on our kids, schools and teachers??? What the beep, if he's not a great leader now why did the board extend his contract for three more years before they had too? What type of sense does that make. The same type that says, if all hopes came true we would be riding unicorns.
Scott Shine, who obviously has a man crush on Vitti as he gave him a near perfect evaluation is completely out of touch. Let me ask you this, should a school district be run on hope or on evidence and data? Scott Shine obviously thinks just hoping is the way to go.
