Peter Gorman

Staff Pick

More and more people are coming to the realization that Gorman may not be the long-view, visionary superintendent CMS desperately needs. Crowded schools in the ’burbs, lousy inner city schools, bullying, endless official tests, opaque CMS administration, clueless downtown desk-sitters dictating to principals and teachers — all were problems when Gorman started, all are problems still. The clincher for the "Zero" award, however, has to be the unimpressive way Gorman has gone about cutting the CMS budget, i.e., canning teachers left and right with little input from the principals, while keeping his own thrilling Q&A show on TV.
