Re: “Superintendent Shuffle: Why Vermont's Top Jobs in Education Turn Over So Quickly

I find it odd that so many people talk about leadership in terms of people in certain positions. Leadership is not the result of being in a position. Leadership is a choice whether or not you are in a leadership role. The abitly to assess challenges and opportunity to improve is only one part of the equation. Even a great leader can be encombered by those who are not brave enough to tackle the change we need to ultimately better prepare young Vermonters to support and reap the benefits of economic growth.

Those folks who opposed H.883 should spend some time talking to High School teachers. The teachers who are seeing the product of 9-12 years of education. They are less inhibited to tell the truth about the education system than administrators who have to be so politically correct.

Tenure doesn't equate to being a good leader. Keeping your head down to avoid conflict isn't leadership. It's self preservation. One the day after Memoial day, I shutter to think about the contrast between our leadership exhibited by our soldiers and people in leadership positions who are afraid of doing what's right.
