"Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz has also chimed into the debate, asking New Yorkers to give Black a chance. He released a statement saying he spoke with her on the phone and was impressed with her enthusiasm for the job." (From a WNYC report today)from nyc education news
Remarkable -- Brooklyn BP Marty Markowitz believes Cathie Black is qualified to lead the NYC public school system because she's enthusiastic about the job, as judged by a telephone conversation with her. Not that's what we calling vetting a candidate!
Enthusiastic? Well, that should certainly be good enough for the parents of 1.1 million children What a crock, and how spineless can you be?
