Craig Goldman, who steps down ..., 20 Dec 2014 [cached]
Craig Goldman, who steps down midcontract Dec. 31 as superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District, says that resigning was his idea.
While it was clear in the November announcement of Goldman's departure that the district was eager for a change, the circumstances were murky. Neither Goldman nor the board leadership at the time commented publicly, aside from an emailed statement, and they have agreed not to disparage each other.
It appears Goldman read the writing on the wall and proposed he step aside.
"It was clear that the board needed a superintendent it could rally around," Goldman said. Three of the five trustees were elected on a platform of change, he noted. During rancorous negotiations with the teachers union, Goldman got into a spat over a cartoon depicting him in a Napoleon hat, then went public with his anger and demands for an apology. Teachers complained that he chastised them and treated them disrespectfully.
Goldman said board members were surprised at his proposal and took time to discuss it.
So why then did the board offer a year's pay as severance, usually a carrot dangled to entice a resignation or to fulfill a payout required by contracts?
"My leaving was for the good of the organization, but at a personal cost," Goldman said.
Goldman, he said, "says what needs to be said."
PTA leader Sara Jenez said Goldman possessed "integrity, decency, thoughtfulness, intelligence and wit" -- quite a different leader than the one portrayed by protesting teachers.
"I believe Craig was an excellent superintendent and is a good man," Wheeler said.
