Tuesday, Sep. 1, 2009 | I agree, we do need to have someone with local ties – bringing in someone from somewhere else has usually meant a short tenure. Someone has to be ready to stay the course and see plans and ideas through to completion. And that won’t happen by giving him/her a big salary and a multi-year contract. We need someone who is passionate about leading the various stakeholders into a successful educational experience. Educators aren’t necessarily good managers – they just went to school and got the credential. Maybe we need someone outside the educational arena (not necessarily another Bersin), someone who can lead with passion, understanding, and consensus building skills. Maybe walk on water once or twice, too.
