I admit the question above was my initial response to reading that outgoing APS Superintendent Dr. Beth Everitt beat out two others to get the head job at Aiken County Schools, S.C.. Given any semblance of administrative experience on the part of the other two finalists, just who could Everitt possibly outclass for the job?
So, thanks largely to the Aiken Standard newspaper and an ABQ Journal link, I found out about the two who aren’t getting the job.
Both of the newspaper profiles make, in my opinion, interesting reading, especially in a detached I live in APS bizarro land and it’s good to see things are just as screwed up and confusing in other parts of the country sort of way.
They say the grass is always greener in another time zone, and I guess they’d be right. I also guess I wish Dr. Everitt well, even if I wasn’t that impressed with the job she did here in Albuquerque.
Dr. Everitt, I hope your new Titanic floats a little bit longer than the ship you just jumped from. Don’t worry about us, we’ll just be floating out here with the icebergs.
