Black and Business
November 17th, 2010

The merits of the case aside, this may not have been the ideal press release to put out about Cathie Black:

Form the Department of Education this afternoon:

BUSINESS LEADERS ANNOUNCE SUPPORT FOR CATHIE BLACK AS SCHOOLS CHANCELLOR

Urge State Education Commissioner to grant waiver

Ninety-one business leaders including Kenneth Chenault of American Express, Jeff Kindler of Pfizer, and Terry Lundgren of Macys today announced their support for Cathie Black to serve as the next schools chancellor of New York City.

(And, no, the release does not mention how many of the business leaders would even think of sending their kids to a public school — with or with out Cathie Black.)

    Will write more on Randy Shannon tomorrow. But his departure reflects more on those who hired him in the first place than him.
