Shiver Me Timbers

The Los Angeles Board of Education has selected an ex-admiral to run its school system. David L. Brewer III will undoubtedly have LA's kids swabbing the decks and painting aircraft carriers in no time. As for his educational experience, well, he must have gone to school some time or other.

The mayor is disappointed at the choice, apparently hoping for a Joel Klein-New York style rubber stamp. It's good to have someone independent running a school system. On the other hand, it's probably good to have someone with at least a little educational experience, too.
