No Wonder They Are So Bad

From my page a day calendar:

After finding no qualified candidates for the position of principal, the school department is extremely pleased to announce the appointment of David Steele to the post.

Barrington, Rhode Island, school superintendent Philip Streifer
This guy probably didn't mean the words to come out this way but it certainly is the way the people like Meryl Tisch on the Board of Regents and NYC administrators are chosen.  Let us not forget the former superintendent Cathy Black and  current one Dennis Walcott.

Is this the same Rhode Island with the high school at which all the teachers were fired?

I pity the, I mean, fools! (With all due respect to Mr. T.)

Not the same high school.
The school in the news last year was Central Falls, one of the lowest performing school districts in the state.
This is Barrington, one of the top performing school districts in the state.
