Tata went through the Broad Academy. What does that mean? It means he's now backed by one of the big three private movers in education - Gates & Walton being the other ultra-rich movers and shakers. Year before last, Broad trained nearly half of all new hires for big, urban school superintendents.
Why hire Broad people? ...to get grant money, and it is very PC.
What this means is more Broad trained folks coming to Wake County, I'd say. That thinking is what is being pushed by Obama and his Sec. of Education Ame Duncan, who just critized Wake BofE decision on community schools.
What this means is 'turnaround' - closing a school, letting staff go, letting them reapply along with new blood at low performing schools. Expect it soon.
What it means is new 'data collection software,' more use of testing on evaluations of staff and added competition, better PR with choice, and 'merit pay' returning to life.
I think some central office heads will roll to make room for the grant money people. But, then, what do I know about fortune telling?
