"Portfolio district"

The new OPSB superintendent says (basically): I don't want to actually.. you know... do things. I just want to be the guy everyone is beholden to for some vague reason.
He’s a proponent of charter schools — having actually founded one in Algiers — and talks about giving the city’s few remaining traditional schools the same type of flexibility that charters have.

He intends to run a “portfolio” district, a popular term nationally for the new paradigm in which a central office exists to authorize new schools and hold them accountable, rather than to manage them day to day.

In fact, he thinks the OPSB central office may need downsizing.
We're not here to stop the charter grift. We're just here to get ours.
