If anything's clear from the past few years, it's that the Chief Education job at CPS is almost completely subservient to the CEO job, or at best mildly preventative (and enabling). So I'm not sure why anyone really cares who gets the job. So I'm not sure why anyone cares who gets the job replacing BEW (Daley
gets heat on pick for CPS education post Sun Times), who recently retired from CPS and moved on to Gary (or was it Michigan City). It's not like the job is a launching pad to greater things, or a position whose holder can tell the CEO what to do or stake out an independent view. Did BEW ever push back against Duncan with any great success? Not that we know of.
