Merryl Tisch Taken Off Scarsdale Common Core Panel

What to make of this?

A panel of education officials will tackle questions relating to the Common Core on Thursday night at Scarsdale High School.

Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch, who was originally slated to be on the panel, is now expected to attend as an audience member.

The panel for "Common Core and High Performers" will be Judith Johnson, the newly elected Board of Regents member; Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, D-Scarsdale; and Scarsdale schools Superintendent Thomas Hagerman.

Paulin said the panel would give the community a chance to hear "first-hand from a brand new Regent and a relatively new superintendent" on education reform. Hagerman took over in July 2014 as the superintendent of the Scarsdale district.

Did Tisch decide she's too toxic these days and take herself off the panel?

Was it "suggested" by one or more of the panel members that she sit in the audience instead of on the dais?

I dunno, maybe it doesn't mean anything at all, but these politicians and political functionaries are all suck sticklers for appearance.

To that point, I find it interesting that Tisch was supposed to appear on the panel but will instead appear in the audience.

  1. Way too toxic. Pretty lame as well. People should still jeer her even if she sits in the audience. What an utter failure. Tisch merits contempt!
