Consensus Building, Eli Broad Style

Syracuse School Board President Richard Strong on his district's hiring of Sharon Contreras, current PPSD Chief Academic Officer, as Superintendent:

“One of the things that the community has been looking for is someone who is a consensus builder,” Strong said Wednesday. “Top-down management is what we’ve had in the past, and it didn’t do what we needed it to do. Her apparent style matches our district more closely than the other [candidates].”

Good luck with that! Also, I don't even want to know who the other candidates were. It is probably almost impossible to find a credible looking superintendent who isn't either a Broad Academy graduate or wishes he or she was.
