Michael Sentance, Education Supervisor of Alabama, resigned Wednesday after a full year at work and before a council meeting where some members wanted to send him back.
Sentance filed a waiver with immediate effect, Governor Alabama Kay Ivey and members of the State Committee.
There are many things that happen in public education in this country
“I hope that Alabama’s education for all children is the country’s highest priority, which gives the state significant educational gains and truly becomes the southern jewel that has the ability to become.”
The retirement comes one year and a day after the release of the Judgment has become the education supervisor in Alabama.
Sentance, Education Adviser and Former Secretary of Education in Massachusetts, was an alien who was not affiliated with Alabama when it was shared by a state committee that elected him to become the next supervisor. Members of the Council who elected for him praised his innovation, suggesting him to bring new ideas. Others expressed concern about the lack of experience in the classroom and school.
In his working hours, Sentance said the state had a crisis in mathematics education and wanted to develop a strategy to increase laziness. He also worked on an intervention in Montgomery’s public school system.
However, committee members criticized their communication skills and intervention therapy. Board members this summer gave him inferior scores on performance reviews. They rated the supervisor’s success on a scale from one to three in several categories. The solution had average values between 1.28 and 2.07.
There seems to be a constant bitterness in the selection process. Council members agreed in June with a report stating that he was a second “superior”, who was the first election of several council members who circulated earlier plagiarism charges against him.
“In the last two years, Alabama has seen too much change in government as well as past changes in leadership positions, we will use deviations of state supervisors who are waiting as an opportunity to” move on and start a new chapter in public education, Ivey said in statement.
