Advising the school board on hiring a new superintendent, I would say: Go!
When the last search was conducted, Diana Greene placed second in the running.
She subsequently was hired to be No. 2 on a new team. This team produced a disgruntled atmosphere.
Was she so far out of the "loop", not knowing that Rick Mills was leaving and a shot at the top job may be at hand? Or was she so inside that she applied to escape to the outside?
She was vetted for the jobs that she applied for, and the boards selected who they considered more qualified candidates.
Consider her, yes, but do so with a field of candidates. Do not just hand over the reins of the team that has cut a big rut in the mud.
