Squawk of the Day - Jan. 13, 2012

"Wearing a three-piece suit every day and acting all stuck-up does not make you a good assistant principal. You need to be a hard worker and serve the needs of the students and teachers daily."

In other words the man struts like a peacock, but falls short of doing his job? Another candid comment on DCSS.

Sounds like he has been taking strutting peacock lessons from his leader, our current Superintendent. If things don't change soon, DCSS will be full of administrators and teachers doing exactly the same thing.

As the squawk correctly implies, it takes more than a professional look to do a professional job which, I might add, we pay a professional salary for. But let's jump to a bigger picture. An analysis of the administrative/overhead positions in the DCSS needs to be made. . Years ago, when Albany High School had twice the number of students as now, and many more "real" graduates, it was run by a Principal, an Asst Principal, two secretaries, and two part time counselors who also taught classes--and it ran very smoothly. I would guess at easily more than a dozen performing the same functions now plus a number of other positions with strange names and spurious duties..

The state actually restricts the percentage of funds that can go into non-teaching positions--for a reason. I nominate Terry Lewis for the analysis. He has the experience with the system and the analytical skills necessary to do it. I can assure you the public would be interested in the subject. How about it, Herald?
