Who Will Replace Vander Ark At Gates?

You have to read between the lines of this NYT story to get any sense of what folks in the education world really think of Vander Ark's departure (Educators React to Shift in Leadership at Gates Fund). Makes sense -- no one wants to disqualify themselves for future funding.

The closest thing to a critical insight was JFF's Nancy Hoffman, who calls Vander Ark a "romantic" for thinking that schools would do better if you made them smaller and freer from district constraints.

Now, onto the unfounded speculation about who will replace Vander Ark. Tom Payzant? Jim Shelton? Pete Bylsma?
