Former Waltonite, Jim Blew, Named to Replace Rhee

At least they are no longer pretending to be run by educators:
Jim has nearly 20 years of experience in education reform. For the past decade, he has served as advisor to the Walton family, which has invested more than a billion dollars in initiatives to expand high-quality school options for all children and build an advocacy infrastructure for education reform. From 2000 to 2005, Jim directed various campaigns for the Alliance for School Choice and its predecessor, the American Education Reform Council. Prior to committing himself full-time to education reform, Jim worked at political and marketing communications firms in New York and California. Jim holds a BA from Occidental College and an MBA from Yale University.
