Principal resignations rise under Rahm; 42 in past school year

Jul 5, 2016 by

Forty-two Chicago Public Schools principals resigned this year, the most since Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office.

And 23 principals, out of about 515 total, decided to retire, a number somewhat higher than the last several years. The 65 school leaders departing this past school year saw more budget cuts, including unprecedented cuts midyear. Since 2011, the next highest number was 37 resignations in 2014. In 2012, only 13 departed, but 96 retired that year.

Let’s blame the toilet cleaners. In recent years, the district privatized school cleaning, taking away principals’ power to manage janitors in their buildings.
