A Corporate Executive for Corporate-style Reforms

In case you haven't heard the news. . .

Name of the New York City Chancellor who resigned:  Joel Klein

Job he's going to take: Executive vice-president for News Corp

His replacement: Cathie Black, a publishing executive/ oligarch

Process by which she was chosen: A public search was conducted, in some public somewhere. Gotham Schools says they know nothing of this.

Black's experience with education: Zero, except her own children were educated at Connecticut boarding schools and she sits on the board of an NYC charter school.

My reaction: Sarah Palin is starting to look reeaaally qualified.

So much for Bloomberg's being subtle about what his real agenda is.


UPDATE I: For Dana Goldstein's thoughts, go here.
