Read a Post for Inside the Board Room: Reflections of a Former School Board Member

Mixed experience

Posted By: Allen Lambert on January 12, 2007
As a former school board member and as an organizational sociologist doing a comparative study of school board decision-making I think the review too easily dismisses Good's negative reflections on his experience (as represented in the quotes). They represent an important part of the whole truth. Yes, we can, and should, improve BoE operation and member performance; yet we need to keep in mind the limitations on what public education and its governance (local and state) can achieve, and why.
