School Board Blues: Only an Idealist-or a Masochist-Would Serve on the Board.
Good, Howard
American School Board Journal, v188 n5 p49-50 May 2001

The board's role is not to lead educationally, but take punches for other institutions' failings. Local control exists in name only. Boards at least keep instinctive self-seeking within bounds. (MLH)
