« NCLB in ...England? | Main | Doug Obletz has the right idea for Memorial Coliseum »

April 21, 2009


Headline should read: All PPS stakeholders fail to bring out the best in their district.

Site councils were supposed to empower school building staff, students and parents to reach consensus on matters relating to their building. In PPS, there seems to be a preference tor power struggles as opposed to building consensus.

Sorry Howard. Ramming a new principal through at Madison without the advice and consent (or consensus, if you will) of Madison's staff is simply a power play by Carole Smith, pure and simple.

Apparently the previous principal wasn't up to the job. So what happens? She's promoted to the district office. Of course the teachers are upset and wary of what will happen next.

Smith, and Smith alone, has some explaining to do.
