Right before the long Thanksgiving weekend, incompetent, unqualified hack:
Education Commissioner Bob Corkins resigned Wednesday, ending a short and stormy tenure as Kansas’ education chief before a new Board of Education could do it for him.
In a 7–3 vote, the board accepted the resignation “with regret” and agreed to provide Corkins with a severance package that includes 30 days’ pay and benefits.
Janet Waugh voted not to accept the resignation “with regret,” since she has none. Personally, I only regret that this story will get buried in the Turkey Day newspaper, which is why I’m running it now.
