Is This The New State Superintendent?

Rumors are swirling around about who might be the new ISBE state superintendent, and one of the ones you'll hear if you keep you ear to the ground is none other than...Blondean Davis. 

Yes, that Blondean.  Now superintendent of Matteson Public Schools (162), Davis was once chief of schools and regions under Vallas.  Ousted under Arne, Davis is rumored to be close to the Mayor and to Rep. Meeks. 

Whoever gets the job has a tough road ahead, given state testing snafus, the school finance debate, and Illinois' no better than middling performance.
