The relatively short state education nightmare is over.
Michael Sentance resigned on Wednesday, bowing out a day before he was sure to be fired by a state Board of Education long tired of dealing with him.
The end of Sentance’s tenure was, ironically, the one thing he managed to handle appropriately.
Quiet. Respectful. Appropriately communicated.
Had Sentance demonstrated those three qualities a bit more regularly in his day-to-day efforts as schools’ chief, he would likely still be with us.
