Alonso quells rumors of his departure
The rumors that Baltimore schools chief Andres Alonso was going to announce March 1 that he would be leaving his job were so rampant that he took the opportunity to try to put them to rest last week.
At a conference on how to increase the graduation rate, Alonso said to a crowd of hundreds of educators, "I am staying." He said he had more work to do and that the rumors were incorrect. The CEO will have been here for three years as of July 1. If my memory is correct he will become the longest serving ceo in a long time (at least the past 13 years), if he is still here on July 2nd.
