Two Finalists Announced for Philadelphia School District Superintendent; SEPTA Assault Arrest video
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Two finalists have been announced for the Philadelphia School District superintendent position. About 100 candidates either applied or were nominated for the position, 4 of which were from Philadelphia. The search committee narrowed that pool down to the final two candidates who will officially be presented to the public next week.

Pedro Martinez is deputy superintendent in Clark County, NV. Clark County educates 308,000 students and is one of the nation's largest; it includes the city of Las Vegas. He has been in Clark County for since last year, and previously was the Chief Financial Officer for Chicago public schools under the current U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Martinez, 42, is a native of Mexico and has never worked as a teacher or principal.

The other finalist is William Hite who heads the Prince George's County, MD, district with 120,000 students. He has dealt with hard fiscal issues and a diverse student population with poor students. Hite is a former teacher and principal in Virginia and school administrator in Cobb County, Georgia. He received his doctorate from Virginia Tech.

Now that the search committee has delivered two finalists the School Reform Commission will decide between the two, which it thinks it's decision will come quickly.


The woman caught on video May 31 beating another passenger on the Route 23 SEPTA bus unprovoked has been arrested. Cassie Darby, 49, of Philadelphia, was charged on Friday with simple assault and reckless endangerment. Darby boarded the bus on the 5700 block Germantown ave, took a seat for a moment, then rushed over to a man in the back and started to hit him. The victim, Bas Slabbers, 35, did not fight back, but stood up. Darby got off the bus at Germantown and Chelten Avenues and ran off. Darby has a long history of drugs, assault, and robbery going back to the 80's.


In Sports, Phillies' postponed Friday game vs Tampa Bay rescheduled to Sunday at 6:35pm. Tickets from last night will be honored at tomorrow night's game.
