Former school trustees should refrain from comment
Original post made by Anne Avis, Old Palo Alto, on Oct 11, 2006
To venture an opinion, especially a strongly worded scolding based on personal assumptions and incomplete information, is condescending at best and damaging at worst.
Our elected school board is responsible for giving our superintendent guidance so that she can effectively lead our district and, ultimately, holding her accountable for her performance. Leak or no leak, it appears that the superintendent has learned that enough principals and other managers are unhappy that active listening and adjustments are needed.
Let's encourage our school board to focus its leadership on rebuilding constructive communications and trust among its most valued employees.
