Article for Superintendent Covington?

There is an excellent article in The New York Times today, wherein a reporter (Javier Hernandez) writes briefly of and then interviews now-outgoing Chancellor of the New York School District Joel Klein.

Besides being an interesting look at an intelligent, hard-working guy who tried to help the students and school system, it reads as--possibly--a pretty good lesson, if you will, for our Kansas City School District Superintendent John Covington.

Mr. Klein's self-criticism:  "We weren't bold enough."

(Understand, I'm not saying Mr. Covington is not being bold enough, by any means.  He has done monumental work on this District.)
