Has anyone noticed that the firm that searches for new superintendants employs itself as interims?$600 a day for a caretaker? It seems a bit extravagant.
Wouldn't one think that the school management structure could survive without the added expense of hiring a former superintendant by promoting from within the existing system, and grooming assistant superintendants to take the job when the superintendants resign, are fired, retire, or move to other positions?

Grooming superintendents from within is a simplistic approach to filling a complex position. Of course that is not a good idea even though internal candidates sometimes are best. The Board of Ed needs to find a good "match" both for themselves and for the overall school community. That requires a careful process and an intelligent decision.
