Choose next superintendent wisely


Remember that when you go nationwide with a search for school superintendent, you are going to get a lot of "travelers" who feel they are upwardly mobile but have no roots anywhere -- and as soon as a better offer comes along, they are gone.

Another thing: Would it be possible to maybe get a superintendent who has a real academic degree? A sort of tangential degree in some vaguely related discipline may sound good, and it probably came from an otherwise respectable school, but what is wrong with a real degree from a university that does not create degree programs in subjects that are little more than window dressing for résumés?
