Word on the street is that Chicago Board of Education president Rufus Williams won't be long in following Arne Duncan out the door. As you will recall, Williams followed Michael Scott as Board President. No word on how or when that event will take place, or why. The duties of Board President seems limited to presiding over monthly meetings and coming up with a catchy pet project (Real Men Read is Williams'). If you know why Williams is going, please fill us in.
In the meantime, below is a video of Williams' recent speech in front of the City Club of Chicago. I couldn't bear to go past the first few minutes but maybe there's something interesting in there.
