Stand Up for Public Education

The American Association of School Administrators conference was in San Diego last weekend.

Parents and community members interested in education may find use in monitoring the AASA site. The association gives priority to interests and rhetoric of school superintendents.

For example, AASA features the program “Stand Up for Public Education.” Sounds good.

I agree that we should support public education. Its primary purpose is student learning.

I tried to find descriptions of superintendents as examples for other administrators and teachers to emulate, such as demonstrating a master learners way of life.

I looked for discussions of issues directly related to student learning rates.

I must have missed them. I know, superintendents have extensive duties overseeing school operations. AASA is an association for superintendents to talk with each other about ways to support student learning in public schools.

I wonder how superintendents can make student learning related decisions without describing direct impacts of their decisions on student learning. If they make decisions that do not directly affect student learning, why is that part of their duties as a school (meaning learning) “leader”?
