WTH is a Literacy Coach and how does that qualify you to be promoted to a Vice Principal?

Where did all these promotion opportunities come from? Were they created positions or were they from retirements? Be honest.

Anyone else notice anything odd about this?

Thirteen (13) of the promotions were women! Only 4 were men! Shows you how biased the female Superintendent of Schools is!

Dear readers,

To answer a few questions:

1.) the lit coach is a specialist position focusing on ( amoung other things) reading fluency. To apply for an administrative position the applicant must have secured their administer I endorsement. By stating that this was a promotion, it simply means she moved up from teaching

2) the opportunities come from retirements, transfers, or those who leave the school system (other job/ marriage and moving to another area/ etc) - they are not created positions

3) Dir of Comm - this was the curveball - he has no background in education that I am aware of, and his track record on air was not stellar - not sure why he was hired, but a good question for Dr Handy before she exits for retirement - email her directly at and ask if you are interested or concerned

4) there are very few men (compared to women) in education, and in elementary education in particular - hence the gender slant - nothing nefarious here, just the fact that men are not nearly as interested in education as in other fields

I am shocked more people aren't commenting on the 2 newly created positions, especially the one that has a salary of more than $90,000.

843 What position? Why are they spending more money when they've been wasting tax money for years? What is the purpose of those positions? Are they cheesecake positions?
