Eugene Sanders, Former Schools' Head, Soaking Up Hawaii Sun

Excuse me, maam? This drink was supposed to have one of those little pink umbrellas in it? Ah, thank you.

Everyone across the city was a little surprised when word came down that Cleveland school’s top man Eugene Sanders was packing his bags and leaving the struggling district mid-school year. The initial reports suggested Sanders had his eye on the top job at his alma mater, Bowling Green State University. Turns out Sanders didn’t make the short list for that post, but he’s doing okay, don’t worry: according to the Plain Dealer, Sanders has landed a juicy spot guest lecturing in Hawaii.

The paper reports Sanders is now at the University of Hawaii at Maui working with education students on “school reform and organizational change.” No word whether or not his lectures press the importance of actually sticking around for the implementation of school reform and organizational change. We’re guessing no.

The former district head tells the paper he accepted the job the day after his retirement from the Cleveland post. He wouldn’t answer questions on when he applied for the Hawaii gig.

Run a troubled school district in Cleveland? Guest lecture in Hawaii? It’s a tough call, one that Sanders probably lost endless nights of sleep over. While’s Sander’s is out getting lai’d in the Pacific sun, the schools press on in the uphill battle.
