Marjorie C. Chiafery: Righting the Ship by Broadening the Base
Goldman, Jay P.
School Administrator, v62 n2 p67 Feb 2005
In her 27 years as an administrator in Merrimack, New Hampshire, Marge Chiafery can legitimately claim to have seen the best of times and the worst. The high moments were the earlier years when Merrimack's job-sharing initiative, teacher evaluation system and middle school project promoting parent-child communication were emulated statewide. The lowest points were those in the mid-90s when the Christian Coalition made the community a beachhead for its assault on public education. This article contains a brief profile on Marge Chiafery and discusses the work she has done in Merrimack, New Hampshire schools.
