The school system is all astir about the selection of Director of Schools by the school board. We used to elect them, but that was changed some time ago. I've been listening to the interviews online. We've had the equivalent of W for director, and one of the candidates looks like Monica Lewinsky but is just like Sarah Palin. I can't get away from them! Just hope she doesn't get it and am so glad I retired when I did. Teacher morale is the lowest I've ever seen it which is partly because of administration but also because of all the changes in education that suck. It's going to take a miracle for education to improve in the US.
