Abstract

"City" piece on Portland school superintendent Mary Jane McCalmon, who is getting a doctorate at Columbia University in New York City, and she wants the school department to pick up two years' worth of tuition, $37,350, plus expenses. But some Portland School Committee members say McCalmon never bothered to tell them about her plans and they never voted to approve them. Sue Clark, the committee's chair, announced the plan to the committee at their May 19 meeting, defending the lack of public discussion by saying she believed committee members already knew. If the full cost of McCalmon's doctorate program is approved, it would take a huge and unprecedented bite out of the department's $256,000 professional development fund.
