IT SEEMS AS if you can never open up the Daily News without finding some knucklehead who thrives at taking shots at the Philadelphia School District.
Due to the current financial problems, the superintendent was depicted as a chainsaw-carrying slasher. This woman cannot catch a break, as she has just endured a bomb threat to district headquarters. In addition, after her salary trumped both the governor's and the mayor's, she appears to be a constant target for the naysayers.
It's difficult for an organization to appear successful when the leader is constantly attacked and put down. It's as if every superintendent is set up to fail, sitting by idly as all hope is left in the laps of the teachers.
