Knowing Who's on First
Ruder, Robert
School Business Affairs, v79 n1 p23-24 Jan 2013
Today's school administrators may find valuable lessons in the famous Abbott and Costello "Who's on First" slapstick shtick as they consider the significant legal, personnel, and public relations issues that may arise should they take serious action, such as the termination of a tenured employee. The key is to know where the players are and what they know. The lack of education about federal laws can put a district in hot water. Therefore, it makes sense for a district's education leaders to take part in professional development opportunities so they remain up-to-date on all relevant issues--and that their staff members do as well. It is essential that district leaders know who's on first, second, and third.
