  1. “Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was there any item of news, or any expression of opinion , which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on the record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed as often as was necessary.” George Orwell , 1984 ( currently in D 67 curriculum)

    ” Those who don’t remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana

  2. NDC is correct. As a former recruiter myself, the “best” candidates are the ones performing well at their current positions and not actively looking to leave. We recruiters know who they are and entice them to come in and be considered for the opening. At higher levels, we are sometimes not paid our full commission until the new hire performs satisfactorily for a specified amount of time. So we have a vested interest in finding the candidate that best meets the client needs. Oh, and we do a lot of the vetting before presenting any candidate.

    And I find it hard to believe that only 20 candidates applied, especially given that District 115 apparently doesn’t require previous job experience as a high school principal.

  3. Why did the board only post the job opening for three weeks on one job board, especially for such an important position? Even districts with less money to spend (and even in CPS, for much lower positions) hire search firms that are able to go out and recruit to develop an amazing candidate pool from across the U.S. In an outstanding and successful school district such as LF you simply cannot sit back and expect the best candidate to find you, instead you must have a team that will research and conduct an exhaustive search for a pool of candidates who best aligns with the values and mission of their client. The school board decided to be lazy and is choosing a leader from a small pile of candidates who dropped in their lap, instead of being pro-active and conducting a national search for a leader. Shame on the school board.
