no male principals

Harrodsburg, KY

I went to the Mercer County web site to attempt to find out what soft job football coach Pardue was given. Although I could find no job listing for the man except football coach, I did find one interesting bit of information. In all of the Mercer County and Burgin Schools there is only one male principal. In my school days we had male principals whom we both respected and feared. Male role models are sadly lacking in county schools, especially below the middle school level. With so many kids being raised in fatherless homes one has to wonder why the schools have gone away from strong male role models. A dose of "Buzard" Martin or Roy Camic would do wonders for today's students.

That ain't it. Here is what happened. About 20 years ago Frankford changed education. Schools had to have something called the site committee. These committees had to be made up of the principal, 2 or 3 teachers and a couple of parents. This committee hires all the teachers and the principal. They also decide how to spend the money that comes from the board of education. Since there are more women teachers than men there are more women on these committees. A bunch of women on the committee turns around and hires a woman to be principal. Since the principal is hired by the committee, she has to be careful and not make the teachers mad or they will run her off. That is why there is only one guy principal in Mercer County and Burgin. From the seventh grade on, especially high school, a strong man principal is needed. I know he cannot whip their butts now, but he sure can do more with the kids, especially boys than a woman principal.
