Money: What To Make Of Pearson Giving To New Leaders?
Here's an interesting development reported in EdWeek's District Dossier: the old guard (Pearson) is giving a chunk of change to the new guard (New Leaders). Or, just as important: the new kids (New Leaders) taking money from the older kids (Pearson). It might be a first -- this intergenerational transfer. And the benefits to both sides are pretty obvious. But $3M for 45 principals isn't any bargain. That's roughly $67,000 per candidate.
