A more fitting remembrance of Joel Klein’s tenure
I won’t say anything else about Joel Klein or the new corporate toady who replaced him, because unfortunately, allowing large urban school districts to be run by know-nothings from the business world isn’t news. But this video from GEMNYC demonstrates what his role as Chancellor was really about: destroying public schools, instead of supporting them. The manner in which school communities were targeted (often on the basis of faulty Data, when an attempt to justify the decision was even made), labeled, shamed, and slated for destructive action is sadly very familiar, especially here in Denver. When will we learn?
