A former Great Neck educator has been named interim superintendent of the Syosset school system, Newsday reported Tuesday night.

Dr. Ronald L. Friedman, a resident of Huntington, will serve in the position until June 30, 2014.

He takes over for the retiring superintendent, Dr. Carole Hankin, whose salary of more than $400,000 brought both criticism and support.

Newsday said Friedman served as Great Neck superintendent from 2004-2009; he also served in the same role in Long Beach.

Patch will have more on this story Wednesday morning.

Unfortunately, this continued the trend of hiring recycled and retired former superintendents. How is this saving any money when you still have a deputy supt? According to Newsday, he is going to make 20k a month starting in January. I thought this would have been a good opportunity to save some money and maybe give someone new a chance.
