In a previous post I wrote about Terrence Carter. Carter was hired from Chicago to run New London, Connecticut schools. He claimed a Ph.D. without really having one. George Schmidt comments:
– George Schmidt is a retired Chicago public school teacher and publishes Substance.
Here a doctor… there a doctor…. everywhere a doctor DOCTOR…
Not to be missed is that “Doctor” Carter’s CPS experience was mostly as a “team leader” for AUSL. In one of the AUSL applications for state funding, they note that Carter was helping at their version of Collins High School, where he was supposedly spending five percent of his time at Collins.
Carter isn’t the only “highly touted” fraud to export from Chicago of late. Of course, the most famous is Arne Duncan (but at least he hasn’t mailed in for his doctorate — yet). Minneapolis discovered that Rick Mills had never gotten his superintendent’s license in Illinois — after they had hired him because he had been “highly touted” from Chicago…
Now Mills has elbowed his way into Sarasota, where the people on the school board who voted for his hiring are filled with regrets.
Jennifer Cheatham bailed out of Chicago and after an undistinguished career here for the top job in Madison, Wisconsin.
Pedro Martinez went from being Chief Financial Officer in Chicago to a top “educational” job in Nevada.
And of course it took four or five stops before someone caught up with the Paul Vallas frauds and fakeries — also in Connecticut. So just when America was freed from Vallas, Pat Quinn saved his “career.”
There are others, but those come to the top of everyone’s mind.
School districts around the USA should stop thinking that a Chicago administrators is “highly touted” when in fact that Chicago brand usually means FRAUD — whether it’s Arne Duncan, a retread satyr like Rick Mills, or that babbling buffoon Paul G. Vallas…
