Vote No! Managing Organized Opposition
Lifto, Don E.; Senden, J. Bradford
School Administrator, v65 n4 p43-45 Apr 2008
Organized opposition from A to Z symbolizes both the breadth and the core values of organized opposition groups that have emerged across the nation in recent years. Technological advances have expanded the reach and impact of oppositional messages. Anti-public school websites, group e-mail, the mushrooming blogosphere and web-based marketing programs can distribute multimedia "vote no" messages instantaneously into the homes and workplaces. In this article, the authors discuss the four primary forms of organized opposition groups--namely, anti-tax, project-specific opposition, conservative Christian and anti-government--and suggest some specific rules that school leaders must follow if organized opposition emerges during their campaign.
