Ric Pocius: Hire locals

Jan’s comments on school district hiring for superintendents is dead on. The same can be said for hiring principals. For too many years the district has gone outside for these positions rather than hiring from within the district. Why? Because we know the faults and flaws of those qualified locals and we somehow believe by hiring from the outside we will get somebody who is a melding of King Solomon and Mother Theresa. Generally, we end up with somebody closer to Alfred E. Newman (What! Me worry?) or Freddie Krueger.

Buy local and hire local whenever possible.
