Joseph L. Wood: A "Tough-Love Professional" with Plenty to Share
Goldman, Jay P.
School Administrator, v63 n1 p51 Jan 2006
This article presents a profile of Joe L. Wood, the current superintendent of South Windsor Connecticut and the previous superintendent of Berkshire Hills Regional Schools, Stockbridge, Massachusetts. In South Windsor, Wood has presided effectively over what had been a rural school district of 3,000 students when he started in 1986 to one that's now an affluent suburb east of Hartford with slightly more than 5,000. His longevity is a testament to his ability to work forthrightly with changing constituencies--a nine-member school board whose composition changes with each election as well as a new generation of demanding parents who often aren't ready to defer to the judgment of educators.
