I imagine this announcement must have blindsided many of your supporters. Where teachers and parents may celebrate, those in the business community who went to bat for you will probably be disappointed and feel betrayed, I however think it is noble that finally you are doing what is best for the community.
Sir, I would like to know how I can help? I have written frequently about how you seem to just throw ideas against the wall to see what sticks. How much of your staff lives in a constant state of fear and intimidation and how you have often regarded teachers as little more than "widgets" and how you seem more interested in what the business community rather than what parents and teachers think among many other pieces and I want you to know I am prepared to take them all down at a moments notice. I wouldn't want anything on Education Matters to slow you down.
Finally do they have a need for a community foundation in Detroit? I have a feeling your pals at JPEF may be looking for new positions as well.
God Speed Sir, God Speed!
