Mayor Bloomberg Fires His Puppet, The Unqualified Ex-Chancellor Cathie Black & Appoints his Poodle As The New Chancellor.
In what was an expected decision the Mayor4Life, Michael Bloomberg has fired the incompetent and unqualified Chancellor Cathie Black who lasted only three months on the job. The ex-Chancellor was so incompetent that the general public realized it by giving her a miniscule 17% approval rating. Even the despised Joel Klein had higher ratings!
Cathie Black was simply a puppet for the Mayor and everybody knew it. During her short stay four high level rats, oops I mean Deputy Chancellors have jumped the sinking Tweed ship along with almost half of the high level Administrators as the incompetent Captain Black was steering a rudderless course (good riddance). So who does the Mayor4Life appoint? A real educator? Of course not, he appointed his poodle, Deputy Mayor, Dennis Walcott to become Chancellor and yes he will also need a State waiver since he does not have an educator's license. Unbelievable, but true.
I find it very interesting that the Tweed Bureaucrats were applauding Dennis Walcott as some sort of savior, That just shows how disposed and disrespected Cathie Black was as Chancellor. She told reporters she went out and bought running shoes as if she can't get far enough away from her disastrous tenure as a Chancellor.
As for Dennis Walcott, known as the Mayor's Poodle. He told the DOE bureaucrats that he intents the follow the Bloomberg Administration's anti-teacher polices and double up on reform, whatever that means. While I see some incremental changes how Tweed works. To me it is the same old group of non-educators who's expensive programs never seem to translate into real learning in the classroom. I do see that with Dennis Walcott in charge, the Bloomberg Administration will try to rally minority politicians to end LIFO which will fail. Otherwise, it will be the same old DOE with Bloomberg's poodle, Dennis Walcott as Chancellor.
