Building Public Support for School Leaders
Schultz, Bob
Leadership, v42 n4 p14-17 Mar-Apr 2013
Almost three-fourths of the American public has lost confidence in the nation's schools, but the recent passage of the Proposition 30 shows that the majority of voters in California hold on to their hope for their schools. School administrators need to build on that vote of confidence, starting at the local level, so they can help the public regain trust and confidence in public schools. One knows that many administrators are nearing retirement age and there will be a major turnover, with many new administrators entering the field in the next decade. How can they be sure that incoming administrators will be able to build on the past and increase the public's trust and confidence in public education? Sharing positive student assessment information is a good start, and they need to consistently share their successes in jargon-free language that the public can access and understand.
