The City That Never Learns

Hartford has hired a new superintendent who thinks NCLB "has raised the level of aspiration and achievement.".

The article ends with these paragraphs:

Search committee member Sam Saylor, president of the PTO Presidents Council, said parents want a superintendent who can turn schools around and answer the question: "Why has success eluded us generation after generation? ...

"At the end of the day, what made him the best candidate is that I wanted the fears of parents addressed, and he will be willing to do that."

Oh well.
