Providence's Decisive Error: Letting Fran Gallo Go

We could have transitioned into a period of stability with a forward thinking superintendent with a deep understanding of the local context and successful tenures as deputy and acting superintendent in Providence. Instead we got Donnie Evans, and now Brady, and I'm afraid we'll have to go outside for another candidate when he leaves, because the remaining leadership capacity downtown is meagre.

This could be Providence. This should be Providence. Good for Central Falls. Sad for us.

The actual model is one that I find quite appealing. It preserves some of the economy of scale of a large school. It preserves the school itself, the teams, clubs, identity -- but it adds some of those smaller scale advantages that we like.

I hope they do well. And too bad for Providence.
