Jochim, Ashley; Lavery, Lesley – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2019

Hill, Paul; Jochim, Ashley – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2018
Local superintendents must do an important job while equipped with, at best, modest authority. Superintendents are ultimately responsible for all the schools in their district, and they at least nominally supervise everything that happens in those schools. Yet superintendents cannot count on obedience or even support from the people who work for…
