New Orleans Job Not Big Enough -- Vallas Considers Side Jobs
While foundations have just ponied up some serious money to help Paul Vallas revamp the NOLA school system, Vallas is considering taking on side jobs according to this report (Vallas seeks a 'vision' for schools) which says that Vallas and his merry band of consultants would help advise the city of Peoria, Il to the tune of $600,000.
Vallas, who commutes between NOLA and Chicago, says he won't take any money.
UPDATE: The firm was invited in to propose a variety of ways to help revamp the 31-school district, according to one of those involved, Gary Solomon. No budget has been set. I did some consulting for Solomon when he was a honcho at The Princeton Review.
