Thursday, Oct. 18, 2007 | It is discouraging to read that the selection of the new superintendent for the San Diego Unified School District is not going to be the open process it was when the current superintendent was chosen. I believe that one of the main qualities desired in the “leadership profile” in the new superintendent are good communication skills with all the stakeholders in the public school enterprise.
The district has almost exhausted the Prop MM funds that were voted for just after Alan Bersin became superintendent. Another bond issue is going to be necessary to bring our schools up to par — that will require a good communicator. The public needs a well-organized, open opportunity to express its wishes in the leadership profile, if they are going to give the next superintendent a good “listening ear” when the plea for new bond funds arise. Don’t shut us out now.
