The State of the Supers

Do You Like Your Job? Superintendents Speak Up!

Women make up more than 20% of superintendents, up from 16% in 2000 and 6.6% in 1992.

Why are there so few female superintendents? Even though the number of women in the job has been steadily growing, many of them feel that a “glass ceiling” keeps superintendents mostly male. That’s just one of the interesting opinions uncovered in the latest survey of 1,338 superintendents nationwide released by the American Association of School Administrators. It is the organization’s first such survey since 2000 to take a hard look at the details of superintendents’ thoughts on their profession.

Stress is skyrocketing as superintendents face increased expectations and fewer resources.

34% of superintendents report moderate stress levels, 44% report considerable stress in their jobs, 15% report very great stress.

93% of superintendents say their relationship with their school boards is good or very good.

    Smarter Than We Think: More Messages About Math, Teaching, and Learning in the 21st Century

    Smarter Than We Think: More Messages About Math, Teaching, and Learning in the 21st Century

    by Cathy L. Seeley

    Smarter Than We Think is a must-read for parents, teachers, policy makers, or anyone who cares about the mathematical education of the next generation. Seeley tackles common misconceptions about students, and she challenges teachers and teacher educators to engage students by turning their classrooms "upside-down" and to rethink what "everyone knows" about teaching mathematics. She exhorts policy makers to put mathematics first and uses this as the guiding principle in making choices about technology in the classroom, restructuring curriculum, and high-stakes testing. Finally, in a set of essays on the mathematical practices in the Common Core State Standards, Seeley reminds us that it is not simply mathematical content that we want students to master. Rather, we should also seek to instill in our students the essential habits of mind that are the hallmark of mathematical thinking, arguably the essential skill for thriving in the twenty-first century.
