musical chairs for private school heads

St. Ann's has a new headmaster, Vincent Tompkins, the deputy provost of Brown University. The New York Times, mcbrooklyn, and the Brooklyn Eagle each have their own spin on the story.

The former head of St. Ann's, Larry Weiss, is moving to Brooklyn Friends just down the street where he began his career in the 70's. In the intervening years he was the Director of Chinese Studies at Sidwell Friends School and Head of the Upper Division at Horace Mann in Riverdale.
