Time will tell and it has.
Two years ago we wrote Deja vieux. The post was about how our EPISD superintendent was using the services of the search firm that got him his job to find new talent to bring into EPISD.
The post went on to address a $20 million dollar contract that the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) gave without bidding to a firm that the CPS chief executive officer used to work for. The chief executive officer was also listed as a senior associate for the search firm that found our superintendent.
The CPS situation did not look good and we wrote that we hoped that our new superintendent would recognize that the situation with the search firm did not look good.
According to this article in USA Today the CEO is getting ready to plead guilty to taking kickbacks in return for issuing the no-bid contracts.
We have had no indication from anyone that our superintendent had anything to do with the wrong-doing.
The current question is: are we still using the search firm?
We deserve better
