Colorful candidates bid for Pinellas superintendent

It's the 23rd largest school district in the nation. And, despite, its problems, Pinellas has a reasonably good reputation in the education world. It's willing to pay its next superintendent up to $240,000 a year. So why does the district keep attracting superintendent applicants with such seriously flawed resumes? See our sister blog, The Gradebook, for news on the latest such candidate - a Chicago area superintendent once accused of shoplifting at a Wal-Mart.
