Naive about Ed. Leadership
I believe communities trust that the best interests of our children's education and issues for improvement, are being adequately attended to by politicians, board members and day to day school leadership. These people or bodies make money and have their names attached to buildings and ideas (Bush, NCLB and Obama, RTTT) but are leading you into a false sense of security - most, nearly all - are way off the mark. Education will not deeply improve (apposed to temporary and superficial) until the real issues that cripple it are put into play by real educators.
