Oct. 7: Carvalho Should Step Aside

By Sylvia Gurinsky

No more. Please, no more.

Alberto Carvalho should say a polite "thank you" to the Miami-Dade School Board and also say that, for the good of the school district, he will step aside and let them choose someone else as superintendent.

After the toxic relationship between the board and former superintendent Rudy Crew, the last thing that's needed is yet another problematic relationship. The issue of the reported e-mails between Carvalho and former Miami Herald reporter Tania deLuzuriaga will not go away. Because it will not go away, it will be a distraction to a school district that needs to fix its budget and its relationship with the community.

Friday's planned school board vote on Carvalho's contract could turn into yet another soap opera.


For the students, teachers and families, Carvalho should walk away.
