Tedesco’s group files some papers; still no work product

Posted By Rob Schofield On October 3, 2011 @ 9:55 am In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

A couple of weeks back, we reported [1] that the North Carolina Center for Education Reform [2] — the group formed by conservative Wake County school board member John Tedesco — had not produced a single piece of public work product (other than a generic website) during its first three months of operation.

Now,  it appears there’s been a major breakthrough: Tedesco’s group has actually appointed a board and approved a budget! 

Shortly after the Secretary of State’s office mailed a letter stating that the group’s application for licensure as a charitable organization was being denied for failure to file necessary documents, Tedesco apparently got on the stick and filed several things last week. They include: a list of board members, an “annual financial report form,” a budget and some more generic documents about the group.  You can review each of these documents by clicking here [3].

And he’s apparently hiring (or has hired). According to Tedesco’s budget, the staff now features three people — a $1680/month office manager (sure hope that’s part-time), a $2,200/month “program associate” (ditto) and himself as a $6,000/month “President/CEO.” 

It looks like it won’t be long until we’ll be inundated with all manner of cutting-edge research and analysis. Stay tuned.
