The search contract’s costs could run more than three times what the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) paid a search firm for the aborted Barbara Erwin mess last year.
Hopefully, the CPE has done some “life-long learning” and won’t place total, blind faith in the search firm like the KBE did. Also, the CPE better not keep the names secret until the very end, and they better listen to independent researchers and reporters if problems are unearthed.
And, there better be some sort of penalty clause in this contract, which could be more than three times as costly as the bill the KBE paid for non-performance.
Bottom line: Let’s keep this process open and transparent. That would be nice, for a change.
