Re: “Bye Bye, Ben

Ben Chavis,

Burgess Foster here.

Sir your achievement is legendary, but if berating a fellow worker in front of students is appropriate I think you need to ask yourself is this the best way to teach conflict resolution.

Language can be incendiary in California where the wrong words can get you in a running and ducking motion.

I think you ability to improve education performance is great, unparalleled even. We could use your help in Detroit. But if you speak to people here like that you won't last long, but unfortunately is the students and district could use your expertise.

I am a candidate for Detroit City Council 2009. I have your interview with John Stossel on my website. I am a fan of yours and could learn from you as I am sure you could teach us something in the D about running a school district efficiently. Actually, I am calling for an entire Charter District-the first of its kind in the country.

Please reach out to me so we can chat: my website can be accessed at:
