If he can’t manage his own finances…

…why let him manage your school system’s? Kudos to Erin Richards of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel for her digging on the city’s superintendent finalists. My hometown has never been known for spectacular educational leadership, and reading this you can’t help but think that picking one of these guys will ensure the record continues. But school boards seem pretty intent on ignoring past, shall we say, sloppiness when they have their heart set on someone.

Individually, superintendent searches are so boring to write and read about. But I feel this little itch that as an entire enterprise, there is much worth looking into.
