KGIA may soon get a permanent principal, but it won't be Almontaser

I haven't been blogging about the Khalil Gibran saga because it's just so far removed from the school at this point. But now that a judge has ruled that the DOE did not violate former principal Debbie Almontaser's right to free speech when it fired her after she made controversial comments in a Post interview, the DOE is one step closer to being able to name the person who will replace Interim Acting Principal Danielle Salzberg. According to the Post, the DOE is ready to name the new principal but is holding off while Almontaser appeals the judge's decision. It's about time. The mime with the law degree and the T.S. Eliot scholar from Egypt who are teaching KGIA's 6th graders need strong leadership.
