B&C: Hart helps to pick Phila. School District CEO

A post I wrote for the Temple News blog, Broad & Cecil: Hart helps to pick Phila. School District CEO: 02.20.2008
The Philadelphia School District’s CEO Search Advisory Committee recommended Arlene Ackerman (above) as the next CEO of the Philadelphia School District, the Philadelphia Daily News reported today. The five-person School Reform Commission, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and PA Gov. Ed Rendell had a say in the final decision.
As the Temple News reported, Hart served along with 44 other local leaders on the advisory committee in the six month search for a new CEO.
Nutter called Ackerman, “the right person for Philadelphia’s schools at the right time,” at a press conference yesterday. Ackerman’s previous experience includes leading the San Francisco and Washington, D.C. school districts.
