Overview

Dedicated, informed school board members are basic to school improvement and success. This practical book explains the role of the board member, from election to taking office. Potential board members are introduced to timely issues they are likely to face, including school violence, high-stake testing, curriculum reform, and school choice. In addition to an overview of issues, Hayes examines the relational aspect of the job—working with the superintendent, school employees, and the community. All superintendents should buy this book for potential board members, and the readable style will attract anyone interested in the job.
