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

Philly fires thousands of teachers, then hires a new 'director of recruitment'

Here's how things work in the Ownership Society.

There's a revolving door between the private sector and what's left of the public. Take for example this week's hiring by the nearly-collapsed Philadelphia Public Schools, of TFA alum Kendra-Lee Rosati as director of recruitment -- whatever that it. Rosati will pull down $90K to start in this newly-created slot in the bureaucracy.

Rosati's last job was in Oklahoma with Teach for America, where her title was managing director of talent strategy and people experience, according to her Facebook page. She's also worked with KIPP Charter Schools as director of growth strategy from September 2012 until last July. Don't you love her job titles? It like her patrons told her, "call yourself whatever", when she printed her new business cards.

Remember, Philly schools have been decimated this past year, with dozens of school closings in black and Latino communities, thousands of teachers and staff (including nearly every school counselor) being fired, while private schools, privately-run charter schools and prisons being fed millions in public funds, diverted from public schools in Gov. Corbett's state budget.

But there's always room at the table for somebody, somebody sent.
