Kerrins, Judith A.; Cushing, Katherine S.
School Administrator, v58 n2 p38-41,43-44 Feb 2001
New superintendents' most common mistakes include extolling a previous district's way of doing things, assuming they are the only experts, having answers before knowing the questions, developing person-specific rules, having either an open- or closed-door policy, redecorating, and being a conspicuous consumer. Avoidance strategies are outlined. (MLH)
