Superintendents for the 21st Century: It's Not Just a Job, It's a Calling.
Houston, Paul
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n6 p429-33 Feb 2001
The 21st-century superintendent faces several challenges: changing demographics (growing diversity), the divide between haves and have-nots, devaluation of children (reliance on remediation over prevention), de-emphasis on education for citizenship, deregulation, devolution of power, "demassification" (fewer common information sources), and disintermediation. The superintendency is a mission, not a job. (MLH)
