Nobody Could Have Predicted

Elisabeth Harrison:

Central Falls High School Principal Sonn Sam has left the school, citing family and personal reasons. In a written statement, district officials thanked Sam for his help with their effort to turn around the school, which has been named one of the lowest performing in the state.

I know nothing about Sam, but the whole idea of bringing in someone from The Met, one of the most radically progressive public schools in the country, to turn around a traditional comprehensive high school -- where "turnaround" means "jack up test scores, fast" -- never made much sense.
