The Renewal Superintendency, Run By Favoritism And Not Competence
The New York Post wrote another article showing that Superintendent Amiee Horowitz was more interested in hiring her friends than competent educators to run her renewal Superintendency. To her its favoritism over competence and it shows with the conflicting orders given to school principals on how to improve their schools. Is it any wonder that Renewal school principals are picking up "newbie" and untenured teachers in droves, since they're easier to blame and discontinue when the schools continue to struggle, despite receiving more money than most schools and can afford to hire higher salaried teachers.
Yes, this is the same Amiee Horowitz who ignored Regents cheating at a Brooklyn high school but discontinued the untenured teacher who filed the complaint. In fact, she tried to have the DOE file a section 31 action to take her teaching license but the DOE realized no such action was warranted. You can read the story here. Moreover, its under Amiee Horowitz where the vast majority of teachers hired by the renewal schools were novice teachers.
All you need to read are the posts I have written about Amiee Horowitz and its easy to see its not about student academic achievement, its about who she likes and not what's best for the students.
