Pittsburgh Public Schools board member Terry Kennedy, state Sen. Wayne Fontana (D-Allegheny/Brookline) and Campaign for Quality Schools Pittsburgh all agree that a new search should begin for a superintendent of Pittsburgh Public Schools.
Pittsburgh Public Schools is the name of the public school district covering Pittsburgh.
Allegations have been circulating over the past week stating that the newly appointed Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Anthony Hamlet, forged the “educational philosophy” portion of his resume.
“Some people are trying to split hairs by saying that a resume isn’t a published document therefore it isn’t plagiarism,” said Terry Kennedy, one of only two school board members to say a new search should begin. “To me, I can’t support having the leader of our district be someone caught plagiarizing, because then how can we hold our children to a high academic standard?”
