Hite will begin transition this week

Incoming Superintendent William Hite is set to begin working in Philadelphia "a couple days a week," but there's still no official word on when he will assume the troubled School District's top job on a full-time basis.

Hite "will be in Philadelphia starting the end of this week working on the transition," School Reform Commission Chairman Pedro Ramos said Wednesday.

"We expect to have something to say in the next week or so about his start date and details of an agreement with him."

Hite is currently the superintendent of Prince George's County, Md., Public Schools, where his contract has a 120-day notice provision.

So the SRC told the Committee of 70 to go pound sand with its request to see the "broad parameters" of the superintendent contract then?

This SRC may even be worse than the Robert Archie version but it's a close call. Nip and Tuck at the wire. Pedro is far beyond disgraceful and everybody I know who knows him, feels that way. He went from a principled, sensitive person to a slithering type who scurried to Harrisburg clandestinely to cut our throats.
