In Miami: more doubts about Carvalho
Controversy continues to swirl around Alberto Carvalho, the Miami-Dade educator who turned down the Pinellas superintendent's job and accepted a competing offer from his home district. Earlier this week, the Miami Herald reported the existence of new e-mails suggesting Carvalho had a romantic relationship with a former Herald reporter who once covered the district. Now comes a report that the School Board ''violated the principles of fairness and transparency'' when it selected Carvalho just hours after severing ties with its former superintendent, Rudy Crew. The Herald reports tonight that the finding was made by the Ethics Advisory Committee, a panel that oversees the School Board.
The panel advised the Miami-Dade School Board to devise a more thorough process for selecting a new superintendent. The board is expected to consider a three-year contract for Carvalho on Friday.
