Who Threw Jay Lang Under The Bus? “Ed!”

by at 1:04 pm.

During the last Lowell Public Schools Superintendant search process, Lowell’s very own Jay Lang was considered early in the process. Mimi wrote about the process, at the time. Connoissuers of City Life will recall with exasperation, George Anthes exhorting repeatedly, “Who threw Jay Lang under the bus?”

Then? I’m not so sure. Now?

Back on June 2nd, I wrote a diary that roused some issues laying quitely around the Lowell Public Schools: What Kendall Can’t or Won’t Say Upon its release, there was a quick flurry of back and forth between Jim Leary and me. But, the thread laid fallow from June 3rd, until today. (Thanks to Jim Leary, btw. It’s good to talk it out in public, most times.)

So, early today, I find this comment:

That’s right. We need to make the required changes with student achievement at the forefront. The know- how on how to increase student achievement comes from educated, qualified and experienced individuals like Jean Franco not Jay Lang. If parents are to keep their kids in our schools then we need to get higher scores on MCAS. What some School Committee members refuse to believe is that it really is all about good teachers. Interview selection committees know that and that’s why they always pick the most qualified, experienced and educated individuals.
