Thank you to Dora Taylor for the heads up. Dr. Goodloe-Johnson is one of two finalists for the superintendent job in Newark, New Jersey (the other is a TFA person). The story is at NJ.com.
Apparently Dr. Goodloe-Johnson wouldn't go on record with the press about what happened here in Seattle but the recorded interview captured this:
"The board terminated my contract without cause," she told the group, immediately bringing up the finance issue "They decided, I think, based on a lot of things — I think politics, reform, union pushback."
Her Broad pal, flack Tom Payzant, says she's one of the best urban superintendents in the country. The proof of that is nowhere to be seen but apparently he thinks if he says it enough, it will be true.
You know, Maria, it's not a good idea to misrepresent the past but like I say, we all need one good rationalization to get us through the day. Yours seems to be that you are blameless in everything. Interesting that she didn't even cop to being the person at the top and the buck should stop with her.
As Julia Roberts says in Pretty Woman to the snobby Beverly Hills saleswomen - big mistake.
