Josh Edelman, recently let go
as head of new schools for Chicago, is apparently already back in
Washington working for Michelle Rhee.
Meanwhile, hard-charging Leigh McGuinan is headed to Chicago from her post in Cleveland, where she lasted less than a year. Before that, McGuinan worked for a time as Director of Strategic Planning for Human Resources.
It's not hard to get a sense of what McGuinan is all about. She blogged for a week this summer as part of Democrats for Education Reform, a pro-charter PAC. And as of this weekend she still had her own blog posted publicly, including background on her education vision. Her experience revamping NYC's principal recruitment and selection process will be interesting to all of you Type 75s out there. (What a good name for a blog that would be, Type 75.) Alas for all you haters out there, she has an education degree along with her JD.
