  • Don't have the time to play it, but didn't I miss something.... it appearing that he wasn't here long enough to turn around anything, and now isn't in a position to do so?

  • In reply to jack:

    Brizard actually thought it was a workshop on how to turn around your failing career...

  • Brizard... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

  • In reply to district299reader:

    JCB was the lamest dipwad to come along in eons. Talk about a man with no cajones, moral fiber, or even an original thought. Wow.

    With Common Core $$$$$$$$$, "You start to see entire ecosystems of investment opportunity lining up…It could get really, really big." --- Last summer, Parthenon executive Rob Lytle made a presentation on "private equity investing in for-profit education companies” to an elite group of investors in NYC. He told them the coming implementation of the common core standards and assessments would create a lucrative opportunity: “Think about the upcoming rollout of new national academic standards for public schools, he urged the crowd. If they're as rigorous as advertised, a huge number of schools will suddenly look really bad, their students testing way behind in reading and math. They'll want help, quick. And private, for-profit vendors selling lesson plans, educational software and student assessments will be right there to provide it. You start to see entire ecosystems of investment opportunity lining up…It could get really, really big."
