Effective School Management is a divided responsibility in almost all highly effective schools. Personally, I agree with many researchers, incessant poor performance is often caused by administrators experience in politics that kills transparency. Why not approach it rationally, and advertise for a National Board Certified Teacher (NBC) holding a Master Teacher Certification (Two Proof beyond doubt) and a Superintendents "qualifications". Yes, they will be young and creative; without race qualification is essential (because the above qualities is RARE) and avoid relics as myself. Experience is not necessary, a solution approach to Native American Education would be interesting.
