I thought Obama had failed to mention his most important executive experience because running the Annenberg Challenge skated too close to Bill Ayers. Maybe that is part of it, but the major reason would appear to be that Obama was an utter failure as Chief Executive at Annenberg.
“There was a total lack of accountability. If you went back and asked, you’d be hard-pressed to find out how the money was spent,” said Paul Vallas, the city’s school superintendent when Obama chaired the Chicago Annenberg Foundation from 1995 to 1999.
Annenberg spent $49.5 million, mostly on grants to 211 public schools that partnered with community-based groups. But despite collecting millions, those schools performed no better than other public schools, a study found.
Well done, Barack. I can see how this prepared you for the Presidency.
