Joe A. Hairston, Baltimore County's next schools superintendent, is a man in much demand. Although Hairston has agreed to take charge of Baltimore County schools starting July 1, a job for which he will be paid $180,000 a year, education officials in Georgia, where he used to work, question whether he will be able to satisfy a contract he signed with them in January.
