In an attempt to regain traction he laid it on pretty thick.
From the Times Union: Vitti proposed the changes be phased in during the next school year, but the School Board and various “working groups” may push some or all those plans back to the 2017-18 school year. The School Board plans to re-set its deadline to vote on the changes to June, instead of February, to give the “working groups” and the public more time.
First it is almost comical that he laments about charter schools when much of the damage they have done has happened on his watch. This isn't to say we don't have hard choices to make in the upcoming years but he's a big reason where we find ourselves and I think step one for him should be to stop digging.
The community and apparently at least a few members of the school board understand that what we want is for us to fix the problems in our schools not for him to blow things up.
I wrote below a few weeks ago and it shows that he just doesn't get it.
