Longtime LiF reader Norman Hill is running for School Board and writing a blog along the way!
Here's a snippet from one of his recent posts about budget cuts:
I do not like the idea of increasing teacher loads (having teachers teach more classes). I would much rather see some of our assistant principals teach a class. It used to be the case that some assistant principals also had some teaching duties but this is no longer the case. I also wonder if any our administrative staff (some of which were promoted out of the teaching ranks) could be reassigned to the schools. I think it is entirely possible that some of these folks might even be more effective if they worked closer to our students and with our faculty.
I think that's an incredibly intriguing idea and certainly worth looking into.
Anyway, please go visit Norman's blog and leave a comment or question for him. He'd love to hear from you.
