Don’t go away mad, Pedro…just go away.
Former Metro School Director, Pedro Garcia, has finally BEEN schooled, and is leaving Nashville, and probably heading west. Garcia made little effort to ingratiate himself with teachers and most school leaders. His dictatorial management style and his penchant for punishing principals who didn’t toe the line of Pedro didn’t prove expedient in either test score improvement or school morale.
I don’t envy his replacement, but he will not be missed from this quarter.
