School Board Mischief in Charleston

Check out Link below.  More school board mischief.  This time in Charleston, SC.  We have got to figure out a way to intervene nationally on the behaviors of so many school board members.  Far too many disrupting the work with their political fanaticism.  It is a crisis we fail to accept. Our Firm works with a number of highly functioning board-superintendent governance teams.  Highly functioning governance teams are becoming a “rare species”.

Salient paragraph in the piece compares corporate boards–a good lesson for elected school boards:

Private-sector boards do not micromanage their CEOs. Companies carefully select board members to support the CEO and C-suite to ensure the company meets its performance goals and financial obligations to shareholders. They are accountable to shareholders to ensure the company grows and its brand image is protected.
