Her resignation is not surprising news to some, especially after last week's alarming article in the Greenville Sun about the embarrassing error by the TNDOE of mislabeling schools on their failing lists. Poor Erin O'Hara was left speechless when a local school leader pointed out a major error with their lists.
Chatter is abuzz this morning from the common folks (who weren't invited to Haslam's Exclusive Education Publicity Summit Stunt):
- Some are wondering if O'Hara already has a cushy job lined up at a "non-profit" in exchange for her silence?
- Some think this is a part of the grand scheme launched by the new PR firm to "rebrand" the image of the TN DOE, Huffman, and Haslam?
- Some wonder if she's the scapegoat taking the blame for Huffman's ineptness?
- Some are saying it is a shame she is leaving because she was one of the few "good" people working at the TN DOE.
Time will tell...
