While his teachers and other staff labor on the front lines trying to make a success of Superintendent John Covington’s far-reaching plans for the Kansas City School District, Covington has been entertaining at least one job offer. As you’ll see here, he’s a candidate to run a collection of low-performing schools in Michigan.
In this light, his sudden and mysterious resignation Wednesday makes more sense. He knew there’s a good chance he’ll be leaving, and I guess he decided to take down his adversary, school board President Airick Leonard West, on his way out, by leveling meddling accusations.
Just like the pedophile priests, these superintendents go from one district to another, wrecking havoc everywhere they go.
