Wow! Metro Pulse managed to get a reference from one of the prominent national education bloggers at Schools Matter. The article reveals the code of silence McIntyre has imposed on the Knox County School employees about his reform efforts. http://www.schoolsmatter.info/2011/09...
"we were told ...it was the superintendent's expectation that all KCS staff were to demonstrate "alignment" with his "vision" and policies (although any "vision" or "policy" had yet to be stated) , that we were to make no statements to friends, neighbors, or community members which expressed any doubt regarding or disagreement with his as-yet unstated policies and "vision", and that Knox County was moving in a "new direction" and we could either "get into alignment ("alignment" is one of his favorite buzzwords) or be "left behind" (there was no doubt that this meant "fired")."
Maybe McIntyre thinks his omerta edict might control blowback from Kari Hancock's parent group who are raising objections to his fraudulent use of standardized tests. The fallibility and potential destructive effects of his policies are well known to a national parent group so he won't keep his toxic secrets from parents for very long. http://parentsacrossamerica.org/
