How Not To Hire A Superintendent

Citizen Stewart:

It’s hard to find agreement on much that ails the Minneapolis Public Schools, but few would disagree that the district is deeply troubled. Saddled with the poor governance of a chronically discordant board, lagging achievement, deteriorating internal systems, discipline issues, and waning public confidence, it’s hard to see how we will ever return to schools that Minneapolitans can be proud of supporting.

One thing is for sure, there is no hope of turning the district around without strong leadership, and that makes recent reports about the failed process of selecting the next superintendent concerning.
