Kentucky education chief warns JCPS that staffing overhauls may be falling short

The Courier-Journal weighs in on how restaffing doesn't actually work:

Only instead of noticing that the audit process is a ridiculous waste of money, apparently we are meant to go through more. Nevermind that the issues started before these children ever started school. Nevermind that the problems have been ingrained for generations. Nevermind that robbing struggling schools of good students and sending them to private public schools actually hurts the kids left behind. Nope. The problems can all be fixed at the high school level starting with teachers. And apparently, the teachers that need to be targeted the most are reading and math teachers, because that's the most important part of high school; learning the answers to the math and reading section of a test.

My interview is tomorrow. Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.
