Feb 14, 2014Chris Cerf jumps around more than a bedbug. Now he is leaving as NJ State Ed Commissioner. And everywhere he goes he leaves scandalous doo-doo in his wake. After a tenure working for fellow crook Chris Christie, Cerf ...
Hopefully this is just temporary as Braun says – and that their elected school board will have a voice in the permanent replacement. Anderson, who was elevated and trained under Klein and Cerf, has been a complete disaster by every possible measure.... Leonie HaimsonHey, Cerf's gig at Amplify is up - even Murdoch found out what clowns he hired. Follow the bouncing ball. Anderson worked under Klein and Cerf, Klein runs Amplify into the ground, despite the enormous advantage of having an edge on contracts - even that doesn't help a bad product.
You might get a kick out of this:
Maybe hire Diana Lam to run it.

Coming Soon From Chris Cerf: I'm Not a CrookGov. Chris Christie to nominate ex-N.Y. schools official for N.J. education commissioner Susan Ohanian Comment:
Just to keep in perspective what education "reform" means to these fellows--and to the media, Christopher Cerf, former President of Edison, the commercial outfit that has stirred up bitter controversy in 25 states, was hired in 2006 by Chancellor Klein, former Counsel to Bertelsmann, a transnational media corporation, and United States Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.I had my own moment with Cerf when he appeared at a Manhattan Institute luncheon and made the ridiculous comment that if we swapped the teaching staffs of a "successful" and a "failing" school we would see a big surge in the failing school and a drop in the successful school. I told him I would bet my pension against any stock options he owned that will enable him to enrich himself on the backs of poor children that there would be no impact - "try it in 10 schools to test your theory" I said. Even he looked sheepish at the bullshit he knew he was throwing around.
Education reform, anyone?
Christoper Cerf revealed that he's a fellow who has no regrets and never even says he's sorry--not even when he's caught violating ethics statutes.
Christopher Cerf was in charge of the project to measure teachers by student test scores.
Oh, and don't forget: Christopher Cerf graduated from the Broad Urban Superintendents Academy in 2004.
NOTE: It's the other Christopher Cerf, the composer of "Put Down the Duckie" for Sesame Street, who has been hired to write a "Blast Away Phuzzy Phonics" theme song for the Broad/Microsoft/Pentagon/McGraw-Hill kindergarten war games product.
