The gospel according to Paul, Business Report
"The man at the helm of Louisiana's ailing public schools is both admired--and reviled--for moments like these. He speaks his mind, and quite frequently, the message isn't popular. He calls the state's best districts "average." He pushes for taking over schools--not just in New Orleans, but now Baton Rouge and Shreveport, too. He wants board members unpaid, educated and term-limited. He insists the notion that some low-income black kids just can't learn is "crap." Pastorek is both passionate, proven reformer, and impatient, pricey lawyer-turned-education-boss rolled into one dapper persona. But does he have what it takes to make good on his promise to deliver world-class education to Louisiana?"
