Business Effect of Baltimore City School Chief Departure

As reported in the Baltimore Business Journal, the greater Baltimore business community may feel a negative effect from the Baltimore City School Chief’s early departure.  According to the editorial,

Donald Manekin, a developer who served as the school system’s chief operating officer from 2000-2002, says the answer can be found in the classroom.

“Businesses are ultimately the recipient of these graduates,” he said Monday, still a little in shock that Alonso announced his June 30 departure Monday morning. . . . Manekin, who served under schools CEO Carmen V. Russo, said the business community now has the responsibility of helping select the new CEO, welcome him or her and create partnerships with the new schools chief.
