THERE ARE few jobs as demanding and stressful as that of superintendent of Boston Public Schools. It is a thankless job in which nearly every decision, no matter how necessary, is met with hostility by some and disappointment by others. It is a position that is difficult to fill and even more difficult to fill with strong, competent leadership.
In Carol Johnson, Boston has found that strong, competent leader. Her credentials are impeccable. Her track record is exceptional.
