'US search' for next Ofsted head

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan is understood to be looking to the US for the next head of England's schools inspectorate Ofsted.
It is thought several Americans are to be approached about replacing Sir Michael Wilshaw, who will stand down as chief inspector in December.
The Sunday Times says a figure working in the publicly funded US Charter schools system could be appointed.

Jim, I was alerted to an article featuring one of the American possible candidates, Joel Klein, and have written about this here:

Secret Teacher: I see Ofsted for what it is – a purposeless farce
I love my job and don’t want to waste energy resenting aspects of it, so my new approach to inspections is: don’t panic and never ask for feedback
