Note from a school board president

I got this e-mail last week in response to my recent AASA article:

I’m the Board of Education president at [district] in [state]. Our board conducted our superintendent’s evaluation last evening and we discussed the use of technology in our classroom. Well, I asked about it and he replied, “Do you mean the 3M machines?” I requested that our Information Technology staff make a presentation to our Board at a work session. Today I emailed your article to our superintendent with the note, “I wish that this had arrived in my email yesterday; however, these are the questions that I would like to have answered.” It’s difficult to know where to begin; the right questions will be helpful. Thanks for your efforts and the timeliness of this particular article.

Just another indication that our superintendents need help. What are you doing for yours?
