Let’s say you were demoted at work for poor management of a project under someone else’s purview. Is that fair?
Most people would say “no,” under the premise that each person should be held accountable for the work under his or her control.
The same principle should apply to Frederick Classical Charter School, scheduled to open this fall. The public charter school will be held accountable for its students’ performance but has virtually no control over hiring.
And the school system is doing everything in its power to stymie the recruiting process for a school that it delayed opening for a year in large part, ironically, to give it more time to find staff.
