In this episode, hosts Joel and Carole discuss the structural and cultural issues that have led to more school leadership turnover and the cost it has on our schools and students. The conversation comes just as school districts are wrapping up their hiring season.
Joel and Carole say superintendents now only stay in place for an average of less than three years, and there also is much turnover at the principal level. This doesn’t bode well for public education.
Joel asks Jeri and Heidi about their mentor-mentee relationship, and how Jeri inspired Heidi to become a German teacher in Wisconsin via the power of mentorship.
