'Lemon' Principals

July 05, 2004

Re "'Lemon' Teachers Plague LAUSD," Voices, June 26: What about "lemon" principals? Unfortunately, there are principals who do not have the management skills, people skills or common sense to build or run any kind of cohesive educational environment. In a perfect world, Alfee Enciso's recommendation would make sense, but to give inadequate principals more power only escalates the problem.

Local district superintendents, as well as the teachers union, need to get out of their offices and visit their district campuses on a regular basis to talk to the hundreds of superlative teachers, staff and volunteer parents to make sure the principal of any given school is accountable for his or her behavior.
