Looks like plenty of applicants for a superintendent job in a desirable location.

Hmmmmmmmm.

Obviously there's a real need here. That's why I'm announcing a new public service initiative: Superintendents for America.

With just five weeks of training at a series of seminars in a van down by the river, we'll declare you qualified to be a school superintendent and charge a school district a mere pittance of a $100,000 "finder's fee" for the honor of placing you in charge of their district.

What the heck...it couldn't do more damage than the Broad Academy, could it?

5 weeks of training is too much for Utah. Ogden School District didn't even conduct a search for a new supe - they just appointed a board member who "volunteered".

This is after the board refused to bargain with the teachers union on a contract, then said all teachers had to agree to their unproven/poorly written merit pay proposal by the following week or they wouldn't have a job.
