Anthony Amato, Orleans Parish Superintendent of Schools, resigns

To be honest, I don't know how I feel about this. At times, I thought he would be good for the Orleans Parish schools, but then at other times, I wasn't so sure. Orleans Parish schools desperately need help and I hope they find someone to do the job. The problem is that there are so many problems on so many levels that even the best superintendent is not going to be able to fix them alone. Everyone needs to put aside the egos, the personal agenda and partisanship so that the kids left in public school can actually get a good education.
