FOLLOWING WELL-INTENTIONED ADVICE by Larry Aronstein

Remember the adage, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. After a 46-year career in public education, 38 as a school and district leader who interviewed thousands of candidates, I believe I can speak with some authority about hiring educators. Be careful about following advice from well-intentioned friends, family and colleagues. Here are a few examples of advice you should not follow, why not, and what you should do.

Really Bad Powerpoint

Really Bad Powerpoint

I wrote this about four years ago, originally as an ebook. I figured the idea might spread and then the problem would go away–we’d no longer see thousands of hours wasted, every single day, by boring PowerPoint presentations filled with bullets.

Not only has it not gone away, it’s gotten a lot worse. Last week I got a template…

A quick way to fix the public schools

Stop doing the two most destructive things now common:

1. Avoid all the psychosocial innovations, such as SEL, CRT, and many more. These things do not give children the foundational knowledge they need. These things are essentially propaganda.

2) When basic knowledge is taught, it's rendered useless by incoherent sequencing and dull…

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU GOT THE JOB, NOW WHAT? by Larry Aronstein

After going through an exhausting job search process, finally you have been appointed to your new leadership position and are starting the job. Of course, you want to be successful. Although you would never admit it, you are feeling insecure. You haven’t formed trusting relationships, you don’t know all of the aspects of your new role, you are trying to figure out the culture of the school-community, you don’t want to over-step your authority and offend anyone,…

Dumb is official policy in K-12

Episode 41 explains that the decline in American education started with John Dewey. He wanted children to be rearranged, transformed, and socially engineered. He didn't want them to know all that much. So, the guy universally called the father of American education, is actually the number one saboteur of American education.

COMMITTEE INTERVIEWS: A BALANCING ACT by Larry Aronstein

Usually as a second step in the interviewing process, be prepared to encounter a 30-minute committee interview in which eight to ten interviewers are seated around the table. It’s important to grasp which stakeholders each member is representing. Usually participants will introduce themselves and tell you: “Jane Smith, President of the PTA,” for example. If their roles are not evident and they seem friendly, it’s okay to ask, “And what is your role?”…
