Race and Politics Rip into the Urban Superintendency.
Rist, Marilee C.
Executive Educator, v12 n12 p12-15 Dec 1990
Heightened racial and ethnic-group politics and increasingly rocky board-superintendent relations are making the urban superintendency increasingly untenable. The politics of urban school governance can stymie even the best candidates. To survive, big-city superintendents need a thick hide, sensitivity to diversity, charisma, self-confidence, courage, vision, and a stomach for politics. (MLH)
