3 Responses to “Draft Bill Cala as next RCSD Superintendent”

  1. Adrian says:

    Cala’s outside support is one reason why he likely won’t be picked by the board. The board does not want someone with broad public support who will be able to challenge their control.

    I do not know Cala or much about him, and did not live in the area when he was at RCSD. But I think he’d be an excellent choice for superintendent. I also think he’d likely fail to get significant improvement in RCSD educational outcomes. After that happens, perhaps then we as a community could stop pining for a white knight to ride in and save us, and start trying to change the structures that push RCSD students towards failure – like creating a county-wide school system to fight segregated poverty, like fighting lead poisoning, like getting new young parents home nursing visits to teach them how to parent, like shifting the school day later so kids don’t have to wake up at 6am and aren’t dismissed from school while there are inviting empty homes to burglarize.

    But, if we ever do seriously look at structural changes like that, it will probably happen after we try everything else and it fails.

  2. Johan says:

    As a current employee of the Fairport CSD, I can (anonymously*) say that I am thrilled to have him gone. Good riddance. I’ve never encountered a more arrogant person in my life. Yes, he’s a talented educator and his work in Africa has been wonderful, but he also looks down upon anyone who isn’t a teacher. If you’re not standing in front of a classroom of students every day, then you may as well not exist; your sole purpose is to serve him, and he will take every opportunity to flaunt his power and humiliate you.

    *Anonymously because though he may be gone, I still believe he still holds virtually limitless power in the district. A puppet master of sorts. The Emperor, you might say.

  3. Znarf says:

    The one absolute over the last 2 or 3 Decades of demolition of Rochester Schools which weren’t good in 1975 has been Adam Urbanski and his Union.

    Before the UNION came to power in the 1960s Rochester had good schools, not the best, and certainly not new buildings, but good schools with Teachers who got the job done.

    Until Urbanski and his UNION paycheck collectors are gone no man, not even Cala can bring education back into the schools.
