Baltimore Schools' Survival Hanging By A Wire

The Baltimore City School System has overcome another roadblock in its ultimate path to privatization by hiring Sonia Diaz as a deputy Superintendent. From a Connecticut source: "Former Bridgeport Supt. of Schools Sonia Diaz, fired from her last job in Las Cruses, N.M., in November, has been hired as an associate superintendent of the Baltimore public schools. Diaz, known by her married name, Sonia Diaz Salcedo, when she worked in Bridgeport from 2000 to 2004, starts her new job in April. She will be in charge of curriculum and instruction. Baltimore County Schools Supt. Joe A. Hairston, in a written statement, said that adding Diaz to his administrative team will help address curriculum issues in the district."
They are still looking for a Chief Executive Officer for the failing Baltimore Public Schools. Maybe after she works some magic,
Alvarado can apply to drive that last nail in the coffin.
