Board and Superintendent: Building the Effective Team.
Kammann, Richard
In this speech, the process problems facing school boards are examined, and techniques for overcoming these problems are suggested. According to the authors, a school board is a collection of diverse individuals characterized by (1) a lack of criteria to define excellence, (2) a lack of specific goals to focus its work on, (3) a lack of broad policies to define its stance on critical issues, (4) little or no knowledge of employee motivation, (5) ineffective board committees, (6) mutual distrust, (7) time wasting inefficiency, and (8) a lack of properly trained people for the job. To remedy these problems, the author proposes the implementation of organizational development principles. As an alternative, he suggests that traditional boards be replaced by professional boards appointed by State departments of education. (JF)
