Rushern Baker's planned school coup d'etat, Part six: To whom will the superintendent report

So far, press accounts of County Executive Baker's school takeover plan claim that the idea is to have the superintendent appointed by and reporting to the county executive.

But is that what will really happen?

Or will the superintendent end up, like many other county officials, reporting to some deputy assistant chief administrative officer with three levels of bean-counting and second-guessing bureaucrats between the school system and the county executive?

And even if Baker promises now to directly oversee the superintendent, what guarantee is there that the next county executive won't shove the schools down deep into the bowels of the county bureaucracy?
