Reflective Quotation

 TIP

Have you thought about creating a "cyber learning day" for a weather-related school closing?  Is it possible in your state to have students do work at home on a computer in trade for a regular eeducational day? Thought provoking? Controversial? Filled with questions?  Absolutely . . . but . . .

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT TELLING OUR STORY

AND LEAVING OTHERS TO TELL IT FOR US

After New Jersey Governor Chris Christie capped superintendents’ salaries,
 he was quoted as saying superintendents were “paid more than $200,000 to
 supervise only a few hundred children.”  Last December Education Secretary
 Arne Duncan reportedly called the U.S. performance on PISA tests “a picture
 of educational stagnation.” Now California’s lawmakers are considering ways
 to limit superintendent compensation because funds for education are not
 meant for “top administrators’ salaries and perks".

 

 "We have long been a proud band of independents, but it’s time to realize that by working together we can do much more for ourselves, our profession, our kids, and our country."

When your administrators don’t return phone calls, your stakeholders may assume they are lazy, disorganized, rude, arrogant, or they just don’t care. What’s important to understand is that whatever they decide, it’s NOT good.
