Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin' to sell

L.A.'s Deasy stacks bureaucracy with Gates guys

John Deasy (L.A. Times)
The L.A.Times has reported that about 20 senior jobs in the school bureaucracy will be funded not by taxpayer dollars but by philanthropists Eli Broad and Casey Wasserman, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others.
Broad and Wasserman, for instance, are strong proponents of charter schools, and the Gates Foundation has supported charter schools as well as softening tenure rules and making test scores a bigger part of teacher evaluations. Several of the new hires also come from that reform world. The new superintendent of schools, John Deasy, is a former official at the Gates Foundation. --L.A.
