Character Counts - Unless You're the Super

One of the candidates for Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) superintendent has a slight blemish on his record and he freely admits it. He shoplifted. It was a small value item and it occurred back when he was in his young and tender 30s. So when does character develop?

The APS mantra has for years been "Character Counts." I guess it's OK to shoplift as long as you finally admit it when you are up for a big-bucks job. Not necessary for lower-paying jobs.

A school system is a microcosm of the community and reflects its values. What does this say about Albuquerque?
