According to the Cincinnati Post:
Cincinnati School Superintendent Rosa Blackwell surprised the board of education Monday by announcing that she plans to retire.
Despite what the Post thinks, I’m quite sure the Cincinnati School Board was not surprised by her decision.
Blackwell’s three-year contract is nearing it’s end- and she has been fighting with the school board for months over the terms of her most recent evaluation.
Earlier this month, the board decided not give her a raise.
And that sounds, to me, like a very non-surprising reason to quit.
( Note: her annual salary of $203,820 is about four times higher than that of the average Cincinnati teacher. )
