Generals. They are leaders; schooled in the ways of the military; able to make decisions seemingly with ease; giving orders; afraid of no one and nothing. That’s what we are brought up to believe.

Somewhere along the way someone thought, “Oooh, this school system is messed up—let’s put a General in charge!!” But, it doesn’t translate. That General as school superintendent was not successful. Why? Because it’s not just about making decisions or giving orders. It’s about understanding education, supporting your staff, caring about children.

Now we have General Kelly. He cares not about the American people, I think.
