Perspective. Resigned to Defeat.
Wolk, Ronald A.
Teacher Magazine, v12 n1 p4 Aug-Sep 2000
Discusses the power of petty politics to trump constructive leadership and thwart educational reform, using as an example the abrupt resignation of Philadelphia's school superintendent in the summer of 2000. Despite the fact that this superintendent was making significant accomplishments, he did not follow the path deemed best by local politicians, instead emphasizing what was best for the children. (SM)
